    I hope this has nothing to do with https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...-kernel-source

    WS X390 PROS
    Kernel 4.12 is a little old for the machine (July'17). You should try a higher one, for example get the RPM package of the latest Kernel 5.2.4-1. You should also consider Tumbleweed that starts at Kernel 5.2.x There are many improvements for new machines there.

    Get this package and open it with Yast (force it). Restart and see if the 5.2 drivers are for the better. That won't affect the existing Kernel(s), just try it for testing purposes.
    [x] kernel-default-5.2.4-1.1.g5034dba.x86_64.rpm 28-Jul-2019 14:58 67M Details

    You shouldn't play with the Kernel, the OpenSUSE Kernel teams do all the work for us.

    Please give the reading:

    Code:
    rpm -qa | grep -i kernel

    Hi, my mouse is working absolutely correct and without any trouble, but as a wired mouse !
    I did not identify a source disturbing wireless mouse: a LED lamp, a static phone, an EIZO terminal or a computer itself (power supply) or possibly a scanner, a TV, a radioamplifier with boxes.

    I'd like to thank for everybody, who contributed to this thread and say sorry, for the problem had no solution in Linux software alone.

    Except that, you mentioned earlier that, you're using the Web-Browser written and maintained by Alphabet employees.

    Can we avoid Alphabet?
