I've been having the same problem on my Think Penguin laptop, and since
seeing this email, I've tried modifying my config.scm unsuccessfully.
I've run the reconfigure command and rebooted. Here is my services

   (cons* (gnome-desktop-service) (console-keymap-service "dvorak")
          (extra-special-file "/usr/bin/env" (file-append coreutils
"/bin/env")) (modify-services %desktop-services
                           (slim-service-type config =>
                                               (inherit config)
"Section \"InputClass\"
        Identifier \"keyboard-all\"
        Option \"XkbLayout\" \"dvorak\"
        MatchIsKeyboard \"on\"
Section \"InputClass\"
        Identifier \"touchpad-all\"
        MatchIsTouchpad \"on\"
        Option \"DisableWhileTyping\" \"on\"
        Option \"Tapping\" \"on\"
                           (guix-service-type config =>
                                               (inherit config)

Neither DisableWhileTyping nor Tapping has any effect. I also set the
corresponding settings in Gnome Tweaks > Keyboard & Mouse > Touchpad.
If I need a Driver field or some specific Identifier, I haven't been
able to find a way to determine the correct info for those fields.
