I've been trying to config my touchpad to disable while I type but have been unsuccessful. I'm using Mint 6 main. Heres the policy I have created in /etc/hal/fdi/policy/schmconfig.fdi
<match key="input.x11_driver" string="synaptics">
<merge key="input.x11_options.SHMConfig" type="string">True</merge>
BUT when I try to launch syndaemon or several other applications for configuring the touchpad I get a message telling me to enable shmconfig. I followed the Ubuntu wiki to create this policy so please do not link that wiki page, I have already gone through it.
