I have this annoying touchpad problem: I move the pointer with the touchpad. Then, at the end of the movement (i.e. when I release contact with the trackpad) the pointer makes a small jump on the screen of (seemingly) random magnitude and direction.
I have a dual boot HP Pavilion dv7 with Mint 13, MATE, 64bit, and a SynPS/2 Synaptics Touchpad. Booting with Windows 7 does not show this issue, indicating to me that the touchpad H/W is ok. Using a mouse with Mint also works completely fine.
I have searched in Linux forums, including this one, but I cannot find a solution. Any help would be welcome!

: just tried Ubuntu live USB - precisely the same problem.Edit 2
: now tried Fedora - same problem. Seems like a Linux distro-only problem since Windows 7 is fine. Any suggestions? Thanks!!
Anybody out there with any suggestion? It is making the laptop very hard to use, since it won't let me click on the place I want; I have to aim 2 or 3 times before it lands on the right place. I don't want to go back to Windows!
Thank you in advance for your help!
