Asus X202E touchpad sensitivity with Ubuntu

The ones out there who decided to drop Windows 8 in favor of Ubuntu after buying an Asus X202E will probably face the issue of a too sensitive touchpad which makes the laptop barely usable, with a lot of random unwanted clicks especially during the “two finger scrolling”.

So you probably want to install jdk1.7.0_45.  Anyway, this said, this procedure will most likely work with following versions of Java, Firefox, Chrome, Ubuntu 🙂 And of course. if you need to install Java for your browsers or operating system and you haven’t yet installed once, just skip the parts with the “rm” command as the rest is the same.
