If you do not like touchpad. Can disable on your laptop with Fn keys. However who can use it need edit somefiles...add code to uses it....

So. I never occurs that I pushed my finger accidentaly and moved cursor. Lol

Why not enable it in xorg itself - from memory you can look for a file
like /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf (or possibly in
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf or similar)

Then ensure that you have a section like:

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad catchall"
        Driver "synaptics"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Option "TapButton1" "1"
        Option "TapButton2" "2"
        Option "TapButton3" "3"
        Option "VertEdgeScroll" "on"
EndSection

When you boot you should have touchpad buttons available even at the
KDM greeter stage for login - (I guess same for GDM though I am a KDE
user only)

I have been doing this for several years with my laptops....
