SynPS/2 Synaptics touchpad works very well but:

  1. When I put a second finger anywhere on the touchpad the mouse movement stops immediately.
  2. this is very annoying because also the two "mouse buttons" are part of the touchpad. so I cannot rest a finger on them.
  3. I can not, for example, mark something because I cannot click and move the mouse at the same time.
  4. I CAN click and move a window around, that is the only moment when it works for both.

I also tried to disable multitouch and dual finger scrolling no change. tried Ubuntu 16.04 / 18.04 newest kernel but no change. Any idea or hint?

Almost same problem : Enable touchpad pointer movement when second finger touch.
