Trackpad issue on Inspiron 14 5410

The trackpad on my Inspiron 14 5410 with Ubuntu 22.04 sometimes (quite often) disengages. (it did also with 20.04, before my upgrade).

Quite often the cursor doesn't move, while I move the finger on the trackpad. In order to have it start moving again, I must perform a click and generally, after that, it starts moving again (sometimes maybe for few centimeters).

This makes the trackpad hardly usable. I end up clicking on wrong places on the screen, making actions that are not what I have to do (e.g. confirming a dialog when I have to dismiss it...) 

This is the output of xinput
