I have a Dell Latitude D820 running F8, but I have the same problem with
pretty much every touchpad. The problem is not how much the cursor
moves as I move my fingers on the pad. There's plenty of documentation
My problem is that as I type, I sometimes find the cursor flying to a
completely different region, so if I'm typing an email, all of a sudden
my typing is going three rows above where I was typing, like the
pressure of my hands on the laptop case is enough to trigger the
touchpad. I would like to change the amount of pressure to be
considered mouse down.
Looking at the documentation for synaptics, it looks like there's a
setting called FingerLow and another called FingerHigh which I think
will adjust the pressure needed. I didn't want to try it without asking
first, lets I render X windows unusable.
So will this do what I want?
