I'm on Ubuntu 14.04, on a Lenovo y410p Ideapad, and I'm having an issue where my mouse movements are registering as a tap even when I've actually moved my cursor. For instance, maybe I have the cursor 100 pixels away from something and I move the cursor quickly to the target. When I lift my finger, Ubuntu thinks I've clicked.
I'm guessing there's a time thresh hold for how long the touchpad can be engaged, and if the movement is less than that amount of time it registers as a click? If so, I'd like to shorten this thresh hold. But maybe it doesn't work like that?
It's really annoying, since any small movement of the mouse usually results in a click, often closing tabs or windows unintentionally.
