disable toucphpad while typing
I'm working on getting "disable touchpad while typing" working in Bionic Mate on the Pinebook Pro.  I have run the firmware update and the feature is working in Debian.  I learned something today that may help solve the problem;  "Disable touchpad when mouse plugged in" also doesn't work.  I'm thinking the software in Bionic doesn't know how to disable the touchpad at all.  Maybe it's linked to the wrong input device?  

Thanks to ayufan for all the work porting Bionic Mate! It's my favorite distro for the PBP.  I just hope we can get this quirk sorted.
I was able to get a little progress in KDE Manjao with this. I added these lines to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-libinput.conf under "Identifier "libinput touchpad catchall"
Option "Tapping" "on"
Option "PalmDetection" "on"

It doesn't behave exactly like I had expected it to, but thank goodness my mouse has stopped jumping around while I'm typing!
