Ubuntu Budgie 18.04 automated random key inputs from somewhere on laptop

New Lad
I've been using ubuntu 18.04 ( budgie ) for my laptop for quite some time. Recently, wierd shit started happening,  I would be browsing a website and scroll down and the the webpage would zoom out. Many other such instances happened until I realised that for some reason the Ctrl button input was being given at certain times. Not only that sometimes my mouse right clicks on its own and when I'm browsing something,  it automatically goes down. I checked the laptop keyboard and it is in mint condition.

Can someone offer some insight please?

Hi,

I had some similar sorts of weird problems and found that there was a
button on my external mouse that had got stuck. It wasn't one of the
usual buttons (left/right/scroll) so I didn't immediately notice. Is
it possible you have something like that? Are you able to boot a live
image of something else and see if it's ubuntu specific?

Regards,
Daniel
