Can't write and move the mouse at the same time [Bodhi Linux]

Hello, I am currently having some drawbacks with the latest version of bodhi linux, the undemeanor is just as express in the title of the subject, I can not write and move the mouse at the same time with the touchpad, this is really annoying since what I installed this Linux version to play minecraft 1.13 (In other linux for some reason lgw does not boot from version 1.12.2), then when I was completely cheerful and Started to play, surprise, I can not play for this problem.The same thing happens to me in lubuntu 18.04LTS, I need help!

EDIT: I'm newbie in linux, so if you can explain me step by step I'll thanks you a lot <3.

INFO EXTRA: I ask to my friend give me him USB Mouse just for test it, and it work perfectly without this problem.

I thought 1.12.2 was the last version that worked on 32-bit anyway, and they don't even advertise the jar for direct download anymore (although still available with link), the deb and linux packages available to d/l are both 64bit; dunno about the arch package cuz I dunno how to use that. Regardless, I did try it with the jar a while ago on my legacy machines; my p4 wouldn't show video on anything past 1.7.2 and my athlon64 was able to run up to 1.12.2 fine but nothing later... but both too slow to be playable.

No idea why your touchpad doesnt work at the same time as the keyboard. That certainly makes that game unplayable. I personally disable the trackpad on my laptop with xinput. I think there is an alternative driver besides xinput some people use, maybe it would work, but I can't remember what it was called. I feel like it was synaptic or something.

This is possibly a feature, not a bug: to disable the touchpad while typing.
please open a terminal and enter
pidof syndaemon
if it returns a number, enter
killall syndaemon
can you now play minecraft?

If so, we need to permanently disable syndaemon.

(There might be one or two other programs that do the same, but syndaemon is most likely)
