TravelMate C110 Disable Touchpad Tap in Ubuntu

I just spent the last few hours disabling the touchpad tap from my little laptop. In Ubuntu I kept losing focus because it would detect a tap on the touchpad. Well this post here by Matt tells you how to disable it.

Here is the code for /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Synaptics Touchpad"
Driver "synaptics"
Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
Option "HorizScrollDelta" "0"
Option "SHMConfig" "on"
Option "MaxTapTime" "0"
EndSection

If you don't have this section then add it. Also include this new device in server layout section. That fixes it!
