Puppy Linux on Laptop - trackpad issues.
Hi everyone, this is my first time here.
I recently got into Linux and after running Ubuntu I was a little disappointed. So I tried Puppy, and boy was I pleased with it. Everything runs great, I installed it to the hard drive (required a bit of tweaking and GRUB didn't want to co-operate, but I got it eventually) and all is dandy... except for one thing.
The trackpad is EXTREMELY sensitive. Not in movement, but whenever I move the pointer, lift my finger, place back on the trackpad, and go to move again, the computer is acting like I tapped the trackpad. The result is all kinds of things popping up, buttons being pressed, items being moved - when all I am doing is navigating normally. It's becoming rather frustrating and if I could just lessen the sensitivity (or turn off trackpad tapping altogether) I'd be very pleased.
I can handle the terminal, I can handle editing files, I can handle pretty much anything as long as clear instructions are given.
The Distribution of Puppy is the 2.16 version with Seamonkey and Drivers. It IS installed onto the hard drive under an EXT3 partition. The laptop is a Medion MIM2080 (love this thing) with, I believe, a Synaptics Trackpad device.
This problem does not happen in Windows, nor in Ubuntu.
Cheers for any help.
