Works after installing xf86-input-libinput.

If default Palm Detection does not work well, one can manually disable part of the trackpad by setting AreaEdge properties.

You can do this on the fly or add these parameters in the config file:

 $ synclient AreaLeftEdge=500
 $ synclient AreaRightEdge=2500

QHD+ Pentile Display

Some models include a 3200x1800 (faux-3200x1800 RG/BW Pentile) screen, which displays very tiny characters, and can make them difficult to read due to its incomplete subpixel matrix.

For Firefox and Thunderbird, add the below property in the about:config area
