8 comments on “Configure Delay for “Disable Touchpad while Typing” Xubuntu

  1. I strongly appreciated your post. This is the last issue I had with my new Sony SV-E1711C5E and Xubuntu 12.04 on it.



  2. This does not work… or at least for Lenovo Thinkpads (SL510) it doesn’t.

    I *suspect* because your syndaemon settings conflict with the trackpoint settings. If you disable the trackpoint (NOT the trackpad) the trackpad button-click becomes useless. Most other laptops don’t have two separate cursor-controlling hardware devices like the thinkpad series of laptops, and I think that’s the reason why this fix fails.

  3. Extremely helpful! I’m on a MacBook pro 5,5 running Arch. I spent quite a bit of time trying to track down the source of this annoying problem before finally narrowing it down to the ‘Disable Touchpad…’ setting and then stumbling upon this tip. Thank you!

    I got it working on my Thinkpad E430 by leaving off the -t.

    syndaemon -i 0.4 -K -R -d

    Everything functions as expected: keyboard-nipple; dedicated right, middle, and left mouse buttons; horizontal and vertical scrolling (two fingers and edge); tapping; and two finger tap/click.
