For the most part, I love my new Dell Latitude E6510. However, the touch pad is driving me mad. It's so sensitive that it will respond to my hands being near it, without actually touching it, if they are warm as when I come in from outside or finish doing dishes. Typing is very difficult because I keep sending the mouse off on unintentional clicks and movements.
I tried disabling the touchpad entirely, but I don't always have a surface to mouse on, and the eraser mouse isn't doing it for me. I'd like to find a better way to deal with the problem -- possibly by decreasing touchpad sensitivity, having it turn off while typing and back on while not typing, or turning it on/off with a key combination. I'm open to other ideas, too, if I've overlooked something.
I'm running Funtoo stable. My WM is XFCE4.
