I was wondering if anyone knows how to disable the mandate that Ubuntu sets by default that if you are typing, you can not move the touchpad. I would like to type AND move the touchpad at the same time, and I have not found anything in accessibility, keyboard, or mouse and touchpad settings. This issue is driving me nuts. I believe Windows calls this settings "palm detection" if that helps. Thanks to anyone kind enough to provide some support!
This can be done with a simple terminal command. Open a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) and run the following command:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad disable-while-typing false
