FS#178 - Bug in package libinput-1.7.0-1

This library encounters some error, after upgrading from the libinput-1.6.2-1 package to 1.7.0-1, the touchpad started flawing, both for clicking and dragging and for two-finger scrolling. The only function that did not change was to move the mouse on the screen, the other functions are not working properly. I was not able to downgrade the package and had to format 5x my ultrabook to test which package it was and find the error.

Same problems with the touchpad here with KDE Plasma 5.9.4.
Since the last update the touch is often not recognized. I have to push harder. Often I need several attempts. It is especially bad when scrolling with 2 fingers.
I almost always work with the touchpad.

I have an ETPS / 2 Elantech touchpad.

I have to downgrade libinput.

Same issue, also Elantech touchpad. Seems that you have to have certain minimum area of finger touching the touchpad for touch to be registered. This seems to apply mostly to gestures only.

The git version in the AUR has the same issue. I think the bug should reported upstream, either suggesting a quirk for elantech touchpads or asking for configuration option for this.

Anyway, does not seem to be a manjaro packaging issue, but a new feature in the upstream driver, resulting from collecting more data.
