I just got a old HP Pavilion x360 that I really want to put linux on, but I'm having problems with the cursor jumping sporadically and clicking things without me touching the touchpad. I tried to install openSuse, Xubuntu, and arch. All three had the same issue. I tried disabling the touchpad, but the problem still occurs.
I installed synaptic drivers and attempted a fix on arch from here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Touchpad_Synaptics#Cursor_jump. No solutions have worked.
I'm using xfce4 with xorg as the display manager on my arch install.
Any help is greatly appreciated because linux is currently unusable. Right now I have Arch installed on the hard drive and an arch live usb to work toward a solution with. Thank you!
Edit: Solved! Just had to disable the touchscreen
