Keyboard Cursor Jumps While Typing
I thought I was imagining things for the last few days but last night I was working on a python script and now I'm absolutely sure the issue is real.
I'm using KDE 4.6.5 from KTown on slackware 13.37 on a new Dell Inspiron 15R Laptop. Any time I am typing in a textbox control, the cursor will jump up and or back at random (seemingly) to a new position and this garbles up my text real bad. I am having to type, really, really slowly to prevent the cursor from jumping to a new position and screwing up my work.
I think I resolved the issue by disabling the keystroke repeat option in KDE but then I can't hold up to go up more than one line, hold enter to go down more than one line, etc, etc. Disabling the keystroke repeat basically makes the computer useless for anything other than web surfing.
Does anyone have any idea how to resolve this or am I just crazy?
