In the past few weeks (after an update) my touchpad have been acting weird.

Whenever, I let go of the mouse button the system does not register it until several seconds later. This is particular annoying when scrolling.

I couldn't find anything about this anywhere nor any other people having the same problem...

I know very little about the mouse drivers, so I don't know where to begin.

Here is ls -la of /etc/X11/:

Here is xinput list-props DEVICEID:

Here are the files in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/:

Here is a pastebin-link:https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/M2y7jQcCz6/ to 40-libinput.conf

  • Could you post InputDevice section from the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf – Bob Aug 16 '18 at 12:20
  • I don't have such a file... – Thomas Kragh Aug 16 '18 at 12:22
  • Do you have files inside /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory? Could you post ls -la /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ – Bob Aug 16 '18 at 12:25
  • I dont' have that folder... I will post ls -la of /etc/X11/ – Thomas Kragh Aug 16 '18 at 12:28
  • Detect your devices first: xinput list, find id number of your mouse, e.g. id=10 or id=7. Next execute: xinput list-props 10 - where you have to replace 10 with real id number of your mouse. – Bob Aug 16 '18 at 12:33

The reason for delayed button release might be the Tapping Drag feature, which is enabled (by default) according to your xinput list-props output.

The Scroll Methods Enabled might also interfere with the buttons, depending on what the currently-enabled scroll method actually is.

Try xinput set-prop <DEVICE> 279 0 and xinput set-prop <DEVICE> 292 0 0 0 to see if either of them fixes your problem.

  • Tried both (first one then added the other) can see using list-props that the change took effect, but unfortunately didn't fix the problem... – Thomas Kragh Aug 16 '18 at 13:29
