Hmm...

Your question asks how to install the driver.

Your question asks how to delete the driver.

I suspect you meant 'uninstall' in the headline, but I'm only speculating based on the rest of your text. You can click on "Edit" and edit the headline, should you choose to make it more clear.

You can just disable the driver that way it will result in your touchscreen being disabled, create a file in /etc//modprobe.d/blacklist_touchscreen.conf and then give it the following content.
Code:
blacklist drivername
Replacing "drivername" with the actual name of the driver and then finally reboot your system
