Chrome email (Gmail) does not perform well under Linux Mint & using Asus Netbook.

I run Linux Mint ver. 9 & latest (beta is only available) version of Chrome & the Gmail
on an Asus netbook model Eee PC 1005HA.

Issue:
1.when I type I always find that the cursor jumps most anywhere to above typed
areas. Thus, I have to constantly look to see that a mess has developed & then correct
the typing.

2. this error does NOT occur using my desktop with same Programs (Mint & Gmail).

So I conclude that the netbook is under powered (Intel Atom N270 1.6GB CPU 667FSB  with 2 GB DDR2-533  RAM) & is the cause of this Gmail corrupted email composition.
I do not type fast (maybe only 30 words per min.).

I like Gmail & prefer it as default on the netbook, but will now use T-Bird on it until I can correct the
Gmail mess.

Please advise.

Jim

Be sure that your wrist is not accidentally touch the touch pad!
This appears to be a common complaint.
Try a usb keyboard to make sure that it is the computer vs Gmail.
I have seen this on other notebooks and netbooks and mac books too.
The touch pad seems to be too sensitive.

hi rem1010:

that reasoning makes allot of sense to me;
i'll be sure that the touch pad process is enabled,
as if it is not, then that's not the issue here.
I do have a USB keypad, so I'll let u know asap.
but right now it's din-din time.
u will get all points if your answer is correct, even if others
produce similar results.
