    Thanks Snowhog!

    This xserver-xorg-input-synaptics was what I needed to disable the Touchpad via a hotkey.

    I wonder why this is no longer part of the default installation...

    Back in the KDE4 days, the package that performed this was synaptiks. When it went away, I found it's replacement, xserver-xorg-input-synaptics. Every new Kubuntu install to my laptop is followed by installing that package.

    True. What is not shown is the radio button "Press bottom left and bottom right" to simulate a middle click.

    What you have is what I USED to have.

    What Global Theme (System Settings > Global Theme) are you using? Of the default three available, I'm using Kubuntu. Different Themes can present (or hide) some options.

    I was using the default theme that is set when the install is done. "Breeze". I switched to the "Kubuntu" theme the panels I was used to were there, along with the "Disable touchpad when the mouse is plugged in". I set that and now I'm a happy camper! I didn't like the dark panel so I selected "Breeze" in the "Plasma Style" panel and restored the panel coloring I like.
    Thanks Snowhog!
