Ubuntu: Erratic Cursor: Laptop Touchpad Driver? [duplicate]



Question:

This question already has an answer here:

I'm experiencing a horribly erratic, bouncy/shaky cursor in Ubuntu, but not in Windows. It's a Dell Latitude E6230 laptop. I was going to replace the touchpad until I discovered I wasn't having the problem in Windows. Might this be a driver issue? Is there a touchpad/mouse driver for Ubuntu that might remedy this problem? I have the same problem while using other Linux distros too on this laptop.

Thanks.


Solution:1

Most of the time it happens if your screen has a touch option and it’s broken. Use

xinput  

to find out the input device ID of your touch screen or touch pad and

xinput disable [ID]  

to disable it.
