This is hrev48584.

For BeOS, there's been an input_server filter that prevented you from accidentally creating mouse clicks on the touchpad while typing. I contacted the author, Shamyl Zakariya, who agreed to release the (tiny piece of) code for us. The archive is attached to this ticket.

I propose to integrate this setting in the Touchpad preferences. I'm not sure the setting has to be adjustable even, at least here the 300ms worked well enough. So, a checkbox should suffice, but if people complain, a slider would be OK too...

Now hosted at HaikuArchive as PadBlocker. Also available as package in HaikuDepot. Still, would be nice to see integrated into the system with a slider in the Touchpad prefs.
