Is there a switch to enable / disable the touchpad? If so, press it / switch it

Touch point and Ultra Nav both enabled in bios. worked in windows. Linux mouse settings no option. Tried booting without the usb mouse attached. No difference. Had to plug USB mouse back in.

sudo ln -s /sys/devices/platform/thinkpad_acpi/hotkey_all_mask /sys/devices/platform/thinkpad_acpi/hotkey_mask
