The touchpad on my laptop works fine the vast majority of time, however occasionally it will stop responding and start glitching, erratic movement and button presses on it’s own accord. Putting the laptop to sleep and waking it again fixes the issue temporally until it’s next episode, although disabling and re-enabling via xinput does not fix the problem.
The laptop is a custom Clevo NP5x_NP6x_NP7xPNP

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep “Touchpad”
shows the touchpad is using libinput and some lines show a kernel bug, some example lines from this:
[ 13.477] (II) Using input driver 'libinput' for 'FTCS1000:01 2808:0102 Touchpad' [ 3754.258] (EE) event7 - FTCS1000:01 2808:0102 Touchpad: client bug: event processing lagging behind by 1167ms, your system is too slow [ 81897.570] (EE) event7 - FTCS1000:01 2808:0102 Touchpad: kernel bug: Touch jump detected and discarded.
Any other info that I’ve left out, please let me know.
