NAME

       syndaemon  - a program that monitors keyboard activity and disables the
       touchpad when the keyboard is being used.

SYNTAX

       syndaemon [-i idle-time] [-d] [-p pid-file] [-t] [-k] [-K]

DESCRIPTION

       Disabling the touchpad while typing avoids unwanted  movements  of  the
       pointer  that  could  lead  to  giving focus to the wrong window.  This
       program needs SHMConfig "on" in your  XOrg/XFree86  Synaptics  Touchpad
       configuration.

OPTIONS

       -i <idle-time>
              How  many  seconds  to  wait  after  the  last  key press before
              enabling the touchpad.  (default is 2.0s).

       -d     Start as a daemon, ie in the background.

       -p <pid-file>
              Create a pid file with the specified filename.  A pid file  will
              only be created if the program is started in daemon mode.

       -t     Only  disable  tapping  and  scrolling,  not mouse movements, in
              response to keyboard activity.

       -k     Ignore modifier keys when monitoring keyboard activity.

       -K     Like -k but also ignore Modifier+Key combos.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       DISPLAY
              Specifies the X server to contact.

CAVEATS

       It doesn’t make much sense to connect to a remote X server, because the
       daemon  will  then monitor the remote server for keyboard activity, but
       will disable the touchpad on the local machine.
