    Touchpad problem for Ubuntu 18.04 on Acer Aspire E 15 laptop

    I have an Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-37QT. It came with Windows 10 natively installed. I recently dual booted it with Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver. Everything else is working fine on Ubuntu, just my touchpad is behaving inconsistently. When I boot up, Ubuntu detects my touchpad and it works. But, after a while, especially after I use an application; it suddenly freezes and never un-freezes after that, even if I reboot.
    I checked for solutions online. I used the commands required to verify whether my touchpad is being detected, and it is.
    Any help would be great!

    Slightly possible that it's a flaw in the installation, or the hardware. I have installed Ubuntu on about a dozen laptops over the years, and the touchpad has worked on has worked fine.

    I drink my Ubuntu black, no sugar.

    Several related possibilities . . .

    If on Acer, try this first (make sure you have previously set Supervisor Password for BIOS/UEFI, then:
