Ubuntu: Touchpad scrolling instead of moving while holding two fingers(Ubuntu Mate 1.18.0)



Question:

I've just installed Ubuntu for the first time on my new laptop and the touchpad is not working the same as on Windows(7 & 10). As can be seen on the picture, the touchpad extends over the touchpad buttons and I hold my finger over the buttons almost all the time while working. On windows, this doesn't make any problems, I can just move the other finger over touchpad and it will immediately understand what I wanted to do, and that is to move the cursor(without any special driver or software of any kind installed). On linux, cursor immediately stops moving when I lay my second finger on the touchpad and starts scrolling.

How can I fix this? There is no way I can use Ubuntu without fixing this functionality.Disabling all two-finger functionality from the menu doesn't fix anything - it still prevents the cursor from moving.

Thanks.
