In my laptop function to disable touchpad while typing is not working by default neither using running syndaemon with custom configuration.

gnome-settings-daemon run syndaemon as syndaemon -i 1.0 -t -K -R. This configuration completely do nothing.

Any options for syndaemon do nothing. With\out -R, with\out -t etc.

Configuration is

  • dell XPS 15
  • Ubuntu 16.04
  • i3wm

Solution was to add in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

blacklist i2c_designware-platform

And reboot the system. After that syndaemon works fine.

  • It really does work, bro. You are really amazing. Why is this happening? BTW, ubuntu 16.04 really has lots of bugs, I still cannot poweroff my system. – dspjm Jun 9 '16 at 9:32
  • It works, but I can't use my touchpad gestures now :( – Zuza Jul 30 '17 at 23:57
