comment How do I verify that syndaemon is disabling the touchpad while I type?
I never found a solution. It looks to me like a bug. I haven't updated to the newest version of Ubuntu yet, so it might have been fixed some time after 12.04.

comment How do I verify that syndaemon is disabling the touchpad while I type?
Adjusting the timeout doesn't help. The timeout doesn't always hold. Often, while I am in the middle of typing a word, the cursor will jump to another point. The time between keystrokes in that case is on the order of 100-200ms, far shorter than any timeout I've ever set. For example, I was just typing '**kwargs' in a python script. The first '*' appeared in the correct position, but the second '*', typed almost immediately afterwards (I double-tapped the key quickly), appeared at a different location, as the cursor had switched positions in between keystrokes.

The cursor is the thing in the textbox that shows you where the characters will appear if you type. The pointer is the thing that you move with your mouse. I said "keyboard input cursor" the second time to try to get that across.

I don't mind the movement of the pointer, which is why I use -t, but the moving of the keyboard input cursor (by tapping) is the problem.

There's no reason this shouldn't be configurable through the GUI settings.

Never mind, I see that KP means keypad, and that you have the obvious layout above.
