You don't say what OS or DE you're using, but have you tried a GUI settings module? In KDE there's synaptiks, and it has settings for "Automatically switch off touchpad on keyboard activity" and cursor motion speed. But it does not create any files in /etc/X11 so I couldn't tell you the equivalents.

Ideas worth trying from this page: [Solved] 4.8 and disabling the touchpad's 'tapping' (Page 1) / Desktop / Xfce Forums

Can you run
Code:
man synaptics
That lists all the synaptics.conf settings.
