Created attachment 1243747 [details]
evemu recording of spurious touch

I captured the attached evemu recording on my XPS 13 9350 while actively typing.  In the middle of typing a word, libinput reported a touch, screwing up my emacs session :(  This recording contains no intentional interaction with the touchpad at all.

I don't know if this is a libinput bug, a driver issue, a firmware issue, or some combination thereof, but I thought that libinput was supposed to have good filtering for this kind of glitch, especially while actively typing.

Comment 1 Peter Hutterer 2017-05-09 02:51:51 UTC
doh, sorry, this one slipped through. still there with 1.7.2, looks like the basic problem is that you're accidentally triggering a tap at the very far edge of the touchpad. that causes the button event, need to figure out how to deal with that.
