syndaemon(1) -- Linux man page

 

NAME

syndaemon - a program that monitors keyboard activity and disables the touchpad when the keyboard is being used.  

SYNTAX

syndaemon [-i idle-time] [-d]  

DESCRIPTION

Disabling the touchpad while typing avoids unwanted movements of the pointer that could lead to giving focus to the wrong window.  

OPTIONS

-i <idle-time>
How many seconds to wait after the last key press before enabling the touchpad. (default is 2s).

-d
Start as a daemon, ie in the background.
 

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

DISPLAY
Specifies the X server to contact.
 

CAVEATS

It doesn't make much sense to connect to a remote X server, because the daemon will then monitor the remote server for keyboard activity, but will disable the touchpad on the local machine.
