To be sure, I've just tested it directly on live session from USB.

It does not work either. The same problem except for that when set to Duration <1 s, it keeps behaving like if it was set to 2 s.

Same issue here, running Xubuntu 15.04

Using Touchpad without properly functional settings like disabling while typing is a real pain. It should be fixed. Skilled users like us may still use console and fixes like 'syndaemon -i 1 -d -t -K', but what about the poor "normal" users?

crysman, does your locale use comma as decimal? I'm seeing this bug as well and I guess this would solve it https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11906. At least it seems like syndaemon only recognizes the integer part of the duration set i.e. it cannot read any decimal as it expects a dot but is given a comma.

Isak> yes, it does (Czech locale). The link you posted doe not work :( What shall be done then to make it work?

I'm also having this bug. My locale is set to Brazilian Portuguese, and it also uses comma as a decimal separator.

Well, then it seems to be the source of the problem (locale using comma separator)... Any fix to be available soon?

Two years later, this is still a problem.

Same here. I also guess, it is using the "integer" from e.g. 1,9s, which will result in a delay of 1 second.
