    I just started using MINT and just Linux in general and I like it but my main problem stems from this cursid assassin courser teleporting around like nightcrawler and highlighting sentences or even entire paragraphs and selecting them to be unceremoniously murdered before my eyes. This is extremely irritating... I think it happened twice while typing this and I'm being careful not to touch the touch pad. It happens allot actually when I'm conscious not to touch the touch pad, it just happens anyway for no reason it seems.

    Any suggestions?
