       syndaemon  -  a program that monitors keyboard activity and disables the touchpad when the
       keyboard is being used.

       syndaemon [-i idle-time] [-m poll-inverval] [-d] [-p pid-file] [-t] [-k] [-K] [-R]

       Disabling the touchpad while typing avoids unwanted movements of the  pointer  that  could
       lead to giving focus to the wrong window.

       -i <idle-time>
	      How  many  seconds  to  wait after the last key press before enabling the touchpad.
	      (default is 2.0s).

       -m <poll-interval>
	      How many milliseconds to wait between two polling intervals. If this value  is  too
	      low,  it	will  cause  unnecessary  wake-ups.  If  this value is too high, some key
	      presses (press and release happen between two intervals) may not be  noticed.  This
	      switch has no effect when running with -R.  Default is 200ms.

       -d     Start as a daemon, ie in the background.

       -p <pid-file>
	      Create  a pid file with the specified filename.  A pid file will only be created if
	      the program is started in daemon mode.

       -t     Only disable tapping and scrolling, not mouse movements, in  response  to  keyboard

       -k     Ignore modifier keys when monitoring keyboard activity.

       -K     Like -k but also ignore Modifier+Key combos.

       -R     Use  the	XRecord  extension for detecting keyboard activity instead of polling the
	      keyboard state.

       -?     Show the help message.

	      Specifies the X server to contact.

       If syndaemon exists with a return code other than 0, the error encountered is as below.

       Exit code 1
	      Invalid commandline argument.

       Exit code 2
	      The connection to the X sever could not be established or no touchpad device  could
	      be found.

       Exit code 3
	      The fork into daemon mode failed or the pid file could not be created.

       Exit code 4
	      XRECORD requested but not available or usable on the server.

       It  doesn't  make much sense to connect to a remote X server, because the daemon will then
       monitor the remote server for keyboard activity, but will  disable  the	touchpad  on  the
       local machine.
