I recently purchased a Lenovo y500 and installed Debian wheezy 64-bit on it with no issues. The problem I'm having is with the touchpad. In Windows (dual boot) it ignores movements on the lower part of the track pad which is used for clicking. In Debian however, the entire touchpad is detected for movements. Thus, when I click, it responds the the slight movements I make on the touchpad while pushing it down. This is especially bothersome when right clicking which often results in my inadvertently selecting a menu option when I release the button.
Is there some way I can configure Debian to ignore movements on a certain area of the touchpad?
