Finally... The touchpad works great!
never had any problems with it but decided to update anyway, and now the trackpad doesn't stay disabled. not sure if it already didn't before, but I would like it to always be disabled because I always use a mouse and also disabling the trackpad seems to fix some issues.

Just got my Pinebook Pro with ANSI keyboard from the batch that shipped after Chinese New Year 2023.  The trackpad has a problem.
With a mouse, pointer response if fast and precise, but using the trackpad, fine control of the pointer is prohibitively difficult (I think it's because of lag).
The first thing I tried was this command, suggested in a previous post in this thread
sudo pacman -Suy pinebook-pro-keyboard-updater
I'm not sure if that updated the firmware; anyway, the trackpad has the same problem.
I'd appreciate if you could look at this and tell me which firmware I have now

Edit: I went to the github page and performed the update.  The pointer seems to have less lag.
The print screen key doesn't work.  If tried to do the revised firmware flash, but got a segmentation fault error.
As I mentioned, I'm on a brand new, bone stock pinebook pro with manjaro.
What should I do to fix print screen?
