Since upgrading to 17.10, my mouse pointer is repeatedly and frequently
getting moved against my will when I am typing on my laptop keyboard (as
opposed to external keyboard) because my hand brushes against the
touchpad or even just near its surface.
Furthermore, I don't want tap-to-click to be enabled. I want to actually
have to push down on the mousepad hard enough to click it to generate a
mouse button event. I can't figure out how to disable tap-to-click in
I did not have these problems _at all_ in 17.04.
I have the touchpad click method set to "Areas" and "Disable While
Typing" enabled in gnome-tweak-tool. This does not help.
I have these lines in the touchpad section of
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-libinput.conf as well:
Option "DisableWhileTyping" "true"
Option "PalmDetection" "true"
Option "Tapping" "false"
They don't help either.
This is a substantial regression in functionality from 17.04.
It appears to be a problem using both Wayland and Xorg.
