I just started using XFCE and have the following suggestions for the
settings dialog for touchpads (using synaptics drivers). As can be seen
in the current source and is explained at
on the web page, the option "Disable touchpad while typing" sets up
syndaemon with '-i 2.0 -K -R'.
My two suggestions are as follows:
* Provide a slider for the number after -i. Two seconds is quite long
and I would really like to be able to change it.
* Having -K (see below for a man page quote) enabled defeats the purpose
of the option when using emacs. I do realise that for using certain
graphics programmes this option is really useful, an option letting me
choose would be really helpful.
I'd be glad to try my hands on a patch, if you approve of the idea.
From the syndaemon manpage
-k Ignore modifier keys when monitoring keyboard activity.
-K Like -k but also ignore Modifier+Key combos
