Got it working. Major improvement. Thanks for the suggestion!

You can use the keyboard as trackpad:

I've added the trackpad tuning for X-Windows to the Wiki;

Wiki - Pinebook Pro - X-Windows & trackpad tuning

As usual, feel free to correct, improve or comment, (good or politely bad).

I've been having the same issues, too. Grabbing the corner of a window is practically impossible. I'll try the tuning suggested (thanks for your work on that, Jack, and to Arwen for updating the wiki).

I plan to get an wireless mouse at some point anyway, since I generally don't like using trackpads, but sometimes it's necessary (if I'm working from the couch, for example).

These are apparently called "resize handles" at least in plasma. You have some power to tweak them and should enable "Extended resize handles" if you can. Finding the settings may take some hunting.

I have always found these too small in any DE. OSX actually has a pretty complicated behavior that seems to track velocity at the window boarders to dynamically extend and apply the resize handles. I'm guessing Plasma isn't well developed there.

I have found many Laptops are overly sensitive on the touch pads, sometimes this can be simply adjusted in the settings.
BUT sometimes it is not precise enough,

Learning to roll your finger on the track pad can make the difference rather than sliding your finger on the track pad. (?)

IF you turn down your setting enough for good precision, you barely move the cursor when you want to move the cursor across the screen !
