I am using a bash script to toggle the touchpad on my laptop. I didn't write the script and know almost nothing about bash scripts. I have the script run when the laptop boots because I never want to use the touchpad and want it disabled. The script does the job and then displays a message that the touchpad was toggled off. The message has an OK button that I click to dismiss the message. I would like to alter the script to do something like delay for 5 seconds and then close. I have searched and found how to add the delay for 5 seconds, but would like to know how to dismiss the message window without having to click the OK button. Thanks in advance.
