Ubuntu – Disabling touchpad when typing

19.04dellsynapticstouchpad

I was trying to set my Ubuntu to disable touchpad when I'm typing, but no success.

I'm using Ubuntu 19.04 in a Dell Inspiron 7000 laptop.

Already set the option in gnome tweaks, but no effect. Already use the syndaemon -i 1 -d -t -K option and still no effect.

Googling my problema I've found this How can I disable touchpad while typing? On Ubuntu 16.04 syndaemon isn't working, but it seems no apply to me, since the xinput list resultas are no two drivers:

Can you help me with this?
