    Hi,

    I also have an HP Envy x360 15-cp0000na with Ryzen 7 2700u and Elan Touchscreen.
    Touchscreen functionality under linux is a random hit or miss. Sometimes after restart it works, most of the times it doesn't: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1644013

      I want to know what is the reasoning some distros use to disable touch-to-click by default. Redhat/Fedora does it, Kubuntu started doing it since last year. Is a giant pain in the ass to have to go to settings to enable something that should be on by default.

        Two words: accidental taps.

          This is what the palm detection is for. I suspect that it was done because of the immature state of libinput, since this stupidity begun when it was adopted by default. KDE's touchpad module to this day doesn't have all the configuration options enabled for libinput as it have for xorg.

            So palm detection prevents only one finger hitting the trackpad? YLSED!

              I wonder if this will work with Corsair RGB keyboards.

                If a person have a problem with a finger causing acidental clicks while operating a touchpad, they have a defective touchpad (looking at you Dell), or are so clumsy that they are better served with a mouse.

                Using click button on a laptop is a retarded, unless you are one of those freaks that use a pointer on a business machine.
