It's a GUI application which sits in the system tray of desktop environments
that support that, whereas syndaemon is a command line utility.

Touchfreeze is a (limited) replacement for {k,q}synaptics, which were
developed by (to best of my knowledge) the same person/people, which have
since been declared abandonware and removed from Debian [0].

Fathi Boudra intended to package touchfreeze, but didn't do so. I contacted
pkg-kde-extras team and co-ordinated to help maintain it under their
maintenance umbrella [1].
