Installed Lubuntu 18.04.3 on my old laptop, a Compaq CQ42 using intel Pentium P6200 dual-core processor with 2GB RAM and 5400rpm HDD… pretty dated config as you might imagine, and thus the need to keep it as lean-n-mean as possible. I plan to turn this into a “carry along” live-audio workstation (I know, I know – people might be shaking their heads, but I’d like to try before I give up). More of that perhaps in another post as I progress.
This laptop was running Cruncbang Linux on which I had managed to perfect the trackpad setting s.t. it’s original jumpy, unpredictable (too sensitive to even mild brushes while typing) was completely fixed. However, I’ve been reading around a bit on how to achieve the same on Lubuntu. I found this SO topic, especially the answer that starts with:
I am using Razer Blade Early 2017 and my touchpad is

Wondering if it is safe to assume that it’d work on Lubuntu 18.04 as well ? Or any pointers to more appropriate steps ?
