[Bug 1397924] Re: [Acer Travelmate B115-M] cursor jumps when clicking on touchpad keys


Simon P., thank you for reporting this and helping make Ubuntu better.
It looks like your laptop has a Clickpad as discussed at
http://www.synaptics.com/en/clickpad.php ?

If so, barring some unforeseen bug, I think I may know what the problem
is, and it would be a general Clickpad issue, versus your specific one.

Despite this, for starters, if you execute the following via a terminal, does the issue either stop or lessens significantly:
synclient RTCornerButton=0
synclient RBCornerButton=0
synclient LTCornerButton=0
synclient LBCornerButton=0
synclient AreaBottomEdge=3900

  [Acer Travelmate B115-M] cursor jumps when clicking on touchpad keys

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I am running Ubuntu 14.04 x64 on my Acer Travelmate B115-M and
  sometimes when i use the left or right touchpad key to make a mouse
  click, the cursor jumps to another place on the screen far away from
  its inital location and executes the click at that location.

  For example: I want to perform a left click in the upper section of my screen with the touchpad key to open a browser tab
  What is expected to happen: I move the cursor to the browser tab and press the left key and the tab opens
  What happens instead: The cursor jumps to the lower left corner and performs the click there, the trash folder opens instead

  That problem is not always happening and i do not know how to produce it, however usually after a few 
  minutes of working on my notebook and clicking around it will occur. Likely not a hardware problem as i already had the whole notebook replaced by my vendor, also with Win7 it seemed to work fine.
