tnx for the reply; let me make sure we are on the same page:
the notebook has a built in trackpad to serve as a mouse; there are two buttons one on the left side of the trackpad, and one on the right.
The "feature" called "touch to click" or "tap to click" means you don"t have to actually push the button till you hear aclick, but merely have to *touch* the
buttons for the click to occur. Unfortunatley, the button sensors are always much too sensitive, so that they click when you don't even touch them sometimes.
All tracpads are this wat; in windows 7, you can disable this with the mouse settings if you have a higher version of w7; unfortunately, the cheapo starter
edition does not show this option, reporting "generic ps2 mouse"; that's windows. In linux mint 13, the control center/mouse deal doesn't even have a tab for
the trackpad/touch to click.
