I use Fedora on a thinkpad T61p. Most things are good, but when
away from my desk using it on my lap I find that many movements on
the touchpad cause the desktop to rapidly cycle through apps on the
desktop. All of these are accidents but I just can't keep from
accidentally striking the scroll areas of the pad, and depending on
where the cursor is, madly switching desktops and apps. So I'm
constantly having to reposition myself on the correct app and
restore hidden windows.
Is there any way to disable this behaviour?
I use fedora 10 and 11 with kde.

You don't say which version of kde you're using, but search their site
for kcm_touchpad. I got it from the community repo.for openSUSE 11.2.
They should have a version for fedora also. After you install it, there
will be an entry in "Configure Desktop/General/Keyboard & Mouse/Touchpad
where you can change its settings.
