You have been subscribed to a public bug: 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 17.10 either. 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.
