issues with keyboard/trackpad in Manjaro, can't test other OSs

Glad to hear it worked!

The trackpad jumpiness is just a symptom of the display failing to refresh - it's not actually an issue with the trackpad itself. So disabling PSR will not only fix those kernel messages, but it will stop the panel from dropping frames and make the trackpad appear to work as normal.
