I am a new Ubuntu user. I am having an issue with erratic/jumping mouse cursor on my HP Envy Laptop (HP Envy 15-q667nr) Tried different linux distros; all have the same issue. Whenever I click on something the mouse jumps. Can someone help? I am very new to Ubuntu/Linux. I like the OS but this is very annoying. I had to go back to Windows 10 :-(

I think this is related to the touchpad. Tried adjusting sensitivity to the lowest setting. Doesnt work. I like Ubuntu but annoying to have the cursor jump across the screen.
