I tried several solution, the last one was updating the BIOS (K52JTAS.206).

Nothing work! Any advices are welcome.

  • I have the same problem on my Lenovo u530 touch. Sometimes it is driving me nuts, but I guess one can accustom to many things :D I can also confirm this issue on recent Arch builds as well as Ubuntu using MIR and now for the fun part: Mac OS X. Only Windows seems to have a proper driver. – lucaelin Apr 11 '16 at 22:40

I am having the same problem, and still have no solution. However, I think a way to solve it is bu modifying the xinput settings.

Reasoning: - In my Lenovo, the trackpad works perfectly and so do external wireless mouse. And the touchpad does work without delay in some instances, so it should be capable - Just from experience the xinput settings in Linux systems don't come as refined as they could be. Sadly.

What I'm doing right now is having xinput list and in another window a xinput list and try to make sure the settings are similar. Will update if I find the right config settings.

Do: xinput set-prop <# of touchpad> "Device Accel Profile" 0

That did it for me.
