I submitted for review the successor of gsynaptics, gpointing-device-settings:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=509310

in the meanwhile, you can disable the touchpad with the xinput command like in:

1. xinput --list
2. locate the id of your touchpad from the list
3. xinput --list-props id (where id comes from 2.)
4. note the "Device Enabled" property id (pid)
5. xinput --set-int-prop id pid 8 0
