I have been having an issue where my trackpad stops responding to clicks. It is intermittent, but happens at least once or twice a day, never more than 4 times a day.
I can move the mouse. I just cannot click on anything. It does not seem to be application-specific.
I have been watching FIXED: trackpad in linux but it does not look to be the same. I checked my libinput version (for whatever reason) and
apt-cache show libinput10 reports that it is 1.15.5-1ubuntu0.3 or 1.15.5-1.
The workaround is to hit the power button, which is configured to Suspend. Then I log back in and the exact same click works.
Anything else that I can check?
As I have come from using Macs, I had hoped it would be possible to set up some comprehensive hardware monitoring for myself. It is not as easy as I had hoped. But I am open to any suggestions. I miss the console log application on the Mac, which made it easy to search across all the logs.
