My terminal is very flaky. Even as I write this the webpage will scroll up and down almost at random. The same goes for my terminal. I will try to type, and the terminal will start paging and scrolling up and down seemingly without cause. As I write this, the page will scroll up and down as well. Also, sometimes when I am typing a white box will appear in the lower right corner of my screen with the letters and words of what I am typing. Can anyone tell me how to turn this behaviour off? Or at least what is causing it? There are times I can barely type. Is there a way to completely turn off terminal scrolling and paging completely? And why is this happening when I am on a webpage as well. I wonder if it has anything to do with my touchpad. Ubuntu 14 HP 2000 Notebook
Thanks in advance.
