Re: "The 'grub-efi-amd64-signed package' failed to install into /target/."

Thanks, but way too complex for me. First, I'm confined to a wheelchair, and my computer case sits near the floor in a small carrier. To get it on the table/open it for upgrades, I have to get a friend to come over after we both have free time from work. Second, I installed Xububtu 16.04.2 LTS with ...

"The 'grub-efi-amd64-signed package' failed to install into /target/."

I have googled, and any solutions I found, such as setting up my own partitions by hand, have failed with the same error message. For example, this was recommended in a similar thread. http://www.tecmint.com/install-linux-mint-17/ - It did not work for me. - Linux Mint 18.1 Cinnamon x64 "Serena". - ...

Re: Mouse stuttering or lagging, help please.

Work-around found! Note that this work-around is only tested on my Acer laptop. It may or may not work for others. Also note that using this work-around will cause a loss of most advanced touchpad features such as 2 or more finger gestures, such as 2 finger scrolling. Tap to click/drag and normal o...

Re: Mouse stuttering or lagging, help please.

Just a quick update. After installing hwinfo and running it, I got the ID of my touchpad, and put it into Google. From my limited knowledge, it appears that a kernel update has somehow messed up support for it?

Re: Mouse stuttering or lagging, help please.

There was no change in trackpad behavior after I ran the "xset m default". I have not specifically installed anything that would show in the driver manager, anything there is the default install choice, or the product of a system update. When I opened the driver manager, here is what I saw: http://i...

search for xserver-xorg-input-synaptics in synaptic (not a pun :mrgreen: ) uninstall whichever version you have installed and try a different version I have no idea how to do that. Am partially sleep deprived, that may be clouding my limited Linux knowledge. (Trying to quit smoking...) See the post...

Re: Mouse stuttering or lagging, help please.

Download the ISO file for Mint 17 or Mint 17.1. Both come with kernel 3.13. As you see the problem also in the live system this should give you an impression if the problem does also apply with the older (not outdated) kernel. The Linux Mint MATE 17.1 64-bit Live USB seems not to have the touchpad ...

Re: Mouse stuttering or lagging, help please.

When I plug in an external USB mouse, that mouse works fine.

The touchpad remains active (almost like having 2 mice plugged into a desktop), and still shows the issues.

It should be stated that Windows 10 works flawlessly with the touchpad.

Re: Mouse stuttering or lagging, help please.

As requested, I downloaded the Antergos distro and tried it as a live USB environment to see if the problem would be duplicated.

Sadly, the same issue was still present.

Re: Mouse stuttering or lagging, help please.

Yes, I was able to reproduce the problem on a reboot with the live environment executing from the USB flash drive. Just as before, the system was fine initially, and then some short amount of time later, no more than a minute, the same mouse problems occurred. I should note that the live boot was as...
