How to Disable touchpad while keying on Aspire One
I intend to disable the touchpad while I type on my Aspire one netbook. If I release the command syndaemon the synaptics vehicle driver is not identified:
Unable to locate a synaptics tool
So, I included the complying with to my xorg.conf documents:
Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "synaptics" Option "Protocol" "auto" Option "Device" "/dev/input/mouse0" Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7" Option "CorePointer" Option "HorizEdgeScroll" "1" EndSection
It is still incapable to locate a synaptics tool, nonetheless my touchpad functions penalty.
You might attempt changing the adjustment you did (or maintaining it) and also mounting the gpointing-device-settings plan, which will certainly give even more arrangement alternatives for your touchpad. Given That Ubuntu 10.04 LTS this plan changes
gsynaptics, if I bear in mind well.
sudo apt-get install gpointing-device-settings
Once mounted you can locate it under System - > Preferences - > Pointing Devices .
Some touchpads mimic a computer mouse in their hardware/firmware, and also as a result of that still (partly) job also if they aren't identified as "touchpads".
If GNOME identifies a touchpad, it will certainly show the tab in the Mouse choices as TheX explains.
The copying conjures up syndaemon for 4 secs after any kind of key-board task (- i 4), other than when modifier keys such as Alt or Shift are made use of (- K), and also just disables touching and also scrolling (- t) for this duration.
syndaemon -i 4 -d -t -K
add this to your Startup Applications
on my lap - top I simply most likely to the System > Prefrences > Mouse and also under the Touchpad tab see to it Disable touhpad while keying is examined ... afterwards it instantly disable the touchpad whenever I am keying ... rather trendy if you ask me ...
