Trackpad woes
#1
I just got my PBP two weeks ago. My trackpad is a bit cumbersome.
First and foremost, it seems not to be properly seated. Please see the photo.

I'm not quite sure if it is an assembly problem that I can fix, or if they "just are like that". Any idea?

Next, I have trouble to get a three finger tap to be recognized (middle mouse button), so I have configured Manjaro/KDE to take a right top and left top corner tap as middle button. According to xev (xorg-xev package) no three finger tap ever gets detected. The two finger tap for right mouse button is also not registered half the time.

I don't think that my device was made in 2019, should I do the keyboard firmware update? Or how can I tell if mine is from last year or this one?
