I recently downloaded Ubuntu on my Dell Inspiron 7559 laptop, and I've noticed the palm rejection acting up. The software works ts partially; the cursor does not move when I try to use the track pad with my palm, so it clearly recognizes my palm, but when I place my palm on the track pad, not necessarily tapping, just placing it there, a click will occur automatically. This causes windows to disappear, so I have to hunt for them in order to get them back.
This is a specifically weird problem I haven't been able to find anyone else having. I dual boot Windows and Ubuntu and I do not have this problem when I boot Windows 10. So is there a setting I can change or a driver I can update? Any help would be appreciated.
I checked my devices using xinput list, and I noticed I apparently had 2 touchpad inputs:
↳ ELAN1010:00 04F3:3012 Touchpad id=12 [slave pointer (2)]
↳ ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad id=14 [slave pointer (2)]
So is the OS listening to the wrong driver? And if so, how do I get it to use the correct one?
