Description Andrew Cook 2015-07-31 17:52:38 EDT
Description of problem:
When using the libinput driver instead of synaptics, the touchpad will be disabled while typing, with no apparent way to disable this behaviour

How reproducible:
Default Fedora 22 install has the issue

Actual results:
Touchpad is disabled while typing with no way to change that behaviour

Expected results:
An option present under gnome settings or xinput to change the behaviour

Additional info:
The synaptics driver may have this issue, but an opposite default

We just recently merged this upstream, should make its way into Fedora within the next few days.
Comment 2 Peter Hutterer 2015-08-19 06:06:00 EDT
sorry, forgot to update this one. libinput 0.21 and xorg-x11-drv-libinput-0.13 provide a property to toggle disable-while-typing.
