Is There A Setting Or Tool That Will Make My Mouse Not Shake When My Finger Is On My Touchpad?

#Topics: mouse vibrates when finger on touchpad

On my toshiba laptop, when I touch my touchpad but don’t move my finger, my mouse shakes slightly.

The mouse sensitivity settings in the control panel don’t help.

Does this happen to anyone else? Is there a fix? It doesn’t happen in Windows.

It’s really annoying and makes doing anything that requires any precision annoying (e.g. selecting a substring in a word). On top of that, my habit of selecting text as I read it makes using the internet near impossible.

Help! I installed Ubuntu to have a better dev environment, but this is making me want to switch back or move to a mac (using rails).

It happens in both gnome 2 w unity and 3 (still on 2 though. took me about 5 minutes to decide to switch back). Should I try KDE?


xinput set-prop  "Synaptics Jumpy Cursor Threshold" 

doesn’t seem to be doing anything…
