Can you explain in detail the behavior of the cursor when it's
There are many independent touchpad problems that look alike.
Of these, the only one I could fix in software was this one:
The symptoms of #2804 are quite distinctive: the cursor jumps immediately
towards the bottom-right corner of the screen each time you put your
finger on the touchpad.
Dilinger and Smithbone have been working on the calibration issue,
but I don't know if they finally succeeded.
Dilinger also had a cleaned up version of the driver, combining
together several touchpad fixes, cleanups and re-enabling the pen
tablet too (#5268). That patch-set had been held until after Update.1
because it introduced yet another regression (#6079).
I don't know who has been working on it, if anybody. Given our
current situation, I might soon find plenty of free time to work
on these things :-)
