Many accidental clicks when scrolling on touchpad

Hey there,

I just installed Manjaro on an Acer Aspire E1-572G. The system is a bit slow due to the old hardware but apart from that everything seems to work well out of the box.

There is just this one very annoying issue that makes the touchpad unusable: Whenever I try to two-finger-scroll, I accidentally send (two-finger-)clicks. This happens around 50% of the times I try scrolling. Plasma doesn’t offer any options to disable two-finger click emulation while keeping one-finger tap; nor can I use edge scolling instead of two-finger scrolling, because apparenty almost the whole touchpad counts as edge.

libinput list-devices tells me this:

I could use an external mouse, but that’s not what I want… so I have no idea what to do.
Any ideas?

Thanks :slight_smile:
