Formerly, when I went into System Settings/Hardware/Input Devices, one of the available options was Touch Pad. I thought it was still there after I upgraded to Mint 14 KDE/KDE 4.10, but I cannot say of certain. It is no longer an option. Furthermore, my keyboard is behaving erratically. Because of the positioning of the touch pad on my laptop, I must be touching it while typing because the cursor is frequently jumping off the screen. I find myself moving from one screen to another, also. When I first installed Mint 13 KDE, I had trouble with the cursor jumping into the desktop search window while typing. I corrected this by disabling the Nepomuk search feature and disabling a number of the touch pad options. Now, I can't find any means of changing the touch pad features. Does anyone have any ideas? Typing is becoming an increasingly frustrating task. Thanks.
