Support for disable while typing has recently been added to libinput upstream. We should be able to do a libinput during the coming days or weeks adding this. Please file a separate bug for tracking this against component libinput. Please also let us know which model touchpad and laptop you've as we're enabling disable-while-typing on a per model basis.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
libinput-0.15.0-2.fc22 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 22.

can I get some testing on this scratch build here please, it aims to improve responsiveness of the palm detection, specifically allowing a finger to move the cursor once the timeout has expired (rather than requiring to lift it). thanks

I'm not finding anything here I can test. Am I missing something?
Click on your arch, like buildArch (libinput-0.15.0-3.fc22.src.rpm, x86_64), then download the libinput rpm on the next page (under outputs).
Okay, I've installed it and restarted. What am I testing for?
heh, I guess if it's not obvious then that's a good thing :)
previously the palm detection would ignore any finger starting before the timeout, so if you switch quickly from kbd to touchpad your finger may not move the pointer.
with that change, if the touch starts after the last key press the finger switches to pointer movement once the timeout expires. if the touch starts before the last key press (e.g. a palm resting), the touch stays ignored until released.
should make the touchpad more responsive while still being useful for those who rest the palm on the touchpad.
Well it is better! But it's not quite 100% yet.
How can I provide you with something useful for this bug? As soon as I become conscious of where my hand are on the keyboard, I won't have the problem anymore.
heh, now you know the problems I have during testing :)
most useful are descriptions (as detailed as possible) about what your fingers are doing, what should happen and what happens. Once you know that, you can produce evemu recordings which make reproducing something easier but a plain description is always the start (mainly to figure out if something is even possible given the hw and other features).
Hm, did you revert something? The disabling while typing functionality is much, much worse today :/
nope, didn't change anything since. but the full patchset is upstream now and it fixes a couple of other issues too. package coming up in a bit
