Touchpad (Mouse) stopped working

Post by birkopf »

Hi guys,

I have a weird problem. Most likely this is caused by some recent update...

When I'm logging in I can use touchpad on my laptop. As soon as I login and session starts - mouse goes in the middle of desktop and stops working.

Anyone seen something like that ? :)

Yes I can still plugin external mouse but I need to have functionality on touchpad.

Does anyone have idea or had similar problem and can help me. Please?

Got a similar problem using LM 18.1 xfce on my HP EliteBook 8440p. The problem is intermittent, may or may not happen during a session and doesn't seem to be particular to any specific program.

While using the touchpad it can suddenly fling the cursor to the top right corner of the screen and become inoperable. I can plug in my wifi mouse and continue without further problem. I have been through all setting relating the touchpad and mouse but cannot resolve the problem :roll:

Have not found any other problem with LM 18.1 xfce other than it would not connect my Epson NX130 printer because there was no driver available and had to source a driver elsewhere.
