libinput 1.13.2 still has the same hysteresis issue. There seems to be no change related to it compared to 1.11.2. Thank you for creating the patch and maintaining this package! It solves all my problems with "jumpy" trackpoint cursors.

@smldis, I experienced the same with GNOME. Interesting that an out of date package (this one) can cause a desktop environment or Xorg to fail so spectacularly. In lieu of reporting this to the relevant upstream, I've bumped libinput-no-hysteresis and all seems well. Hope it works for you. NB, vanilla libinput v1.11.2 continues to exhibit poor precision and pointer locking (on my Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air 13.3 (2016)).

This was bad for me this morning: libinput stopped woking after my last update, and my pc was unusable due to a frozen keyboard and mouse in kde at boot.

I had to discover the "" kernel params and use grub to boot in emergency mode and then track down that this package was the problem.

"Might I suggest opening a new bug on libinput's issue tracker?" Yes please! I have the same problem on my x1 carbon.

Thank you

There have been multiple attempts to address hysteresis; have a look through the 1.10.x release notes and bug 98839. All I can say for sure is drawing small circles on libinput-no-hysteresis performs "better" than mainline libinput; the level of precision is higher and I do not observe the pointer locking to a rectangle. Might I suggest opening a new bug on libinput's issue tracker?

First, I appreciate you managing this package.

However, I did install it locally and test it out. There's a distinct difference between libinput v1.8.3 and latest/this. I thought at first it might have been the hysteresis, but I'm not so sure anymore.

This package and all versions of libinput > 1.8.3 have a choppy/angular motion. It's really unfortunate.

Right now I'm using the downgrade package and running sudo downgrade libinput to keep it at v1.8.3. I hope I don't need to do that long-term.

Updated the patch for libinput-v1.10.x. Shame the issue still persists in v1.x (for me at least).

I think you should add this line to the PKGBUILD conflicts=('libinput')

I am using Arch Linux for 2 years. and have not made an account on AUR. But now special for you tlvince i have made an account just telling you that. Thank you so much. for this package. I was stuck with libinput seriously it sucks. Just hysteresis problem. They took so much time to solve this problem.but you did it thank you very much Please keep updating and please don't leave this package out of date. seriously it solved my problem of hysteresis. Some people might be getting problem for conflicting with libinput so those guys.

sudo yaourt -Rdd libinput sudo yaourt -S aur/libinput-no-hysteresis

(don't forget to add gpg of tlvince otherwise it won't install sometimes)

Seriously i don't want any hysteresis in libinput because it blew up my mind.when cursor not moving while i am programming. why libinput developers don't understand this. same happened to nautilus search

Re-adopting as it doesn't look like libinput v1 (with hysteresis fixes) will be released any time soon.

tlvince commented on 2017-12-01 15:56

Disabling hysteresis (where appropriate) has been fixed upstream (, but currently unreleased (AFAICT). Nonetheless, orphaning in favour of libinput-git.
