Clickpad config trouble on 18.3

Post by profwumbo » Tue Feb 20, 2018 2:23 am

I am having some trouble dealing with the clickpad on my HP Stream 11 Pro.

It seems to be very inaccurate, and very very slightly jumpy. I had Windows 10 on it before, and the clickpad was very predictable, and movement seemed very natural and precise. Now, when I try to move a small distance cursor-wise, sometimes it will overshoot. It's almost like a dpi problem, if that makes sense? It also seems to be more drastic in the vertical directions.

I have tried messing with the built in trackpad options, but they don't seem to do anything, or at least nothing predictable. The acceleration definitely does something, but sensitivity doesn't seem to change anything.

I think this is all a user error, because I can't say I understand the device and its configuration very well. Something to do with synaptics and libinput, but I couldn't tell you which one controls what.

Any advice is appreciated!!
