    Input Devices are Unstable


    Hey guys,

    I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Y700-15ISK with an ElanTech touchpad.
    It sometimes work and sometimes not. When it does work, it can go unstable after a few minutes or remain stable for a while (unrelated to idle time). When it does work xinput shows ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad and when it doesn’t, the touchpad is detected as anything from PS/2 Generic Mouse to PS/2 Logitech Wheel Mouse or even PS/2 Elantech Touchpad (read: not ETPS/2).
    Also, when that happens, the text cursor tends to jump on many key presses and the computer becomes more or less unusable.

    I experienced the same behavior with other Linux distros (e…g, Ubuntu, etc…) and already tried:

    Nothing worked so far.
    I’d really appreciate your help!

    Thank you,
    Moshe.

    Ok, seems like I found a solution to this problem:
    I had to downgrade the linux-firmware package to version 1.149 (downloaded from here and installed manually).
    After rebooting, everything became stable again :)
