recently I installed ubuntu 16.10 on my Asus zenbook flip UX360UA and everything works fine except for the touchpad. Whenever I stop moving the cursor for more than a few seconds, it starts to randomly click and move rapidly around the screen, resulting in some unwanted dragging, selecting and clicking. I can use a mouse with the USB port and disable the touchpad input to solve the problem but I'd like to see if someone had the same problem and found a solution. Here is the output of xinput in a terminal:

⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ ELAN1300:00 04F3:3028 Touchpad id=12 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ FTSC1000:00 2808:5120 id=13 [slave pointer (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Asus Wireless Radio Control id=7 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Video Bus id=8 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Power Button id=9 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Sleep Button id=10 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ USB2.0 HD UVC WebCam id=11 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Asus WMI hotkeys id=14 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=15 [slave keyboard (3)]

Thank you

Solution : After touching my touchscreen (not touchpad) the problem seems to have dissappeared. I apparently didn't think of touching the touchscreen before posting here :).
