TouchFreeze – Tray icon that disables your touchpad while typing
TouchFreeze docks in your system tray (KDE/Gnome) and disables button click events while typing.It's similar to ksynaptics if you know that but more simple.
touchfreeze is a program that disables your touchpad when you are typing. This prevents unintended click and scroll events when part of your hand touches the touchpad while you are typing.
After you stop typing, there is a certain delay before your touchpad is enabled again. You can set the value of the delay by moving the slider in touchfreeze’s window. touchfreeze’s window appears when clicking on its dock icon.
touchfreeze only disables click and scroll events coming from your touchpad. It does not disable cursor movement, neither any events coming from your mouse.
- no configuration of the touch pad
- ksynaptics ranks high on powertop
