HP 530 LInux Mouse Cursor Problem

Discussion in 'Laptops' started by carterrk@gmail.com, May 22, 2012.

    I've inherited a three year old HP 530 that I want to install Linux on.

    I've tried about a dozen distros with various window managers, and they all have the same problem: Once in a while, the mouse cursor will jump to a different part of the screen for no apparent reason.

    Has anyone else experienced this, and come up with a solution or work-around?

    Each time that happened to me, I found some fluf around the
    lED/sensor on the bottom of the mouse.
    Removed it, and back to normal operations.

    Well, I don't think that's my situation. I'm using the built-in trackpad and mouse buttons. I guess I should have said that.
