[Bug 1416601] Re: touchpad does not respond to tap-to-clicks in I2C mode in Ubuntu 15.04 on 2015 XPS 13 (9343)


The touchpad worked fine for me with the utopic kernel (3.16.0-30). Due
to general system stability problems though I upgraded to the current
vivid kernel (3.18.0-12), which seems much more stable in terms of no
CPU/GPU hangs so far, though the above mentioned touchpad problems
happen for me too since I use the 3.18.0-12 one.

  touchpad does not respond to tap-to-clicks in I2C mode in Ubuntu 15.04
  on 2015 XPS 13 (9343)

Bug description:
  Tap-to-click does not work unless I tap several times really fast
  (which is really hard to do), which also causes the cursor to move.
  This is a poor user experience.

  Relatedly, sometimes when using two-finger scrolling, the touchpad
  will get stuck such that I can let go and the cursor won't move. I can
  continue using two fingers to try scrolling, which works, but I can't
  get the cursor to move. If I tap the cursor several times really fast,
  I can eventually get the cursor unstuck so it moves again. I suspect
  that this is related to the tap-to-click issue.
