Description of problem:

"Disable touchpad while typing" is very handy but the desactivation time is way too long. We should be able to set this time manually and to only desactivate tapping and scrolling.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

3.4.1

How reproducible:

Activate "disable touchpad while typing" in the settings, type some text, wait.
  
Actual results:

Desactivation time is 2.0 seconds, it blocks moving the pointer + tapping + scrolling.

Expected results:

Options to set the desactivation time, possibility of blocking only tapping + scrolling.

Additional info:

This features is handled by syndaemon, the default command is syndaemon -i 2.0 -K -R.
We should be able to activate the "-t" flag and modify the "-i" flag's argument.

Please note that this problem is really annoying in the long roll. Thank you for your time.
