I have an LT27 Gateway notebook. Not sure what the touchpad is. When I had Windows, I was able to disable the tapping on the touchpad, so that I could type without random redirection of the cursor due to spurious tapping signals from the touchpad. But since I got Lubuntu about a week ago, I have been unable to disable the tapping feature, which makes typing a challenge.
The option to disable the touchpad while typing does not work on my Samsung RC512 with an Elantech touchpad and I enjoy two-finger scroll and middle-click emulation with two fingers too much to disable tapping the touchpad. When I type the cursor will jump around because I'll hit the touchpad with my palm. How can I disable one-finger tapping but keep multi-finger tapping?
Hi all, I've searched for a solution to this, but nothing seems to work. Any advice would be realy appreciated. I'm trying to use syndaemon to prevent touchpad tap-clicks while I'm typing. For example, I used the command
syndaemon -t -i 1
which is supposed to disable tapping while typing, with a one-second delay until tapping is restored.
I'm currently using Statler the alpha build of CrunchBang and finding it faster than Ubuntu. However my touch pad is not double tapping at all. In Ubuntu I usually fix this problem by downloading gpointing device and toggle the Tapping time option. This does not seem to be working for whatever reason, so if anyone knows how to solve my issue that would be great.
How do I disable touchpad paste without disabling tapping on my touchpad?
The spot to press to paste is in the upper-right corner of the touchpad (right where my thumb knuckle likes to touch while I'm typing). Actually, sometimes it pastes and sometimes it's shorthand for undo. I'd like to disable both of those.
