    F20 touchpad doesn't work

    Hello everyone,
    I've been using Fedora 20 with Gnome for a week. It's preety cool, but i've problem witch touchpad. I used to use Debian 7.1 and Windows Vista earlier. Finally I deleted another OS nad installed Fedora, but I forgot to enable touchpad with Fn+F9 (I don't know if it's related). In system everything seems, that tuchpad is enabled, but it still doesn't work . I have Toshiba A300-22W. Here is log form xinput:
    Code:

    See this: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_t...touchpad_click

    Try editing the conf file like it shows, that worked for me.

    Re: F20 touchpad doesn't work

    Hi there, I didn't want to open a new thread because my prolem fits in here pretty well, I guess. I'm a Fedora newbie, so I hope you don't mind my clumsy question.

    Installed F21 on an Acer Aspire E13 laptop. The touchpad still does not work even though I tried to follow the advice on the wiki (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_t...touchpad_click) and edited the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ file as described. Furthermore, in Gnome there is no touchpad section when I click on Mouse&Touchpad in the Settings.

    Anyone an idea how to solve this?

    Re: F20 touchpad doesn't work

    I am having similar problems with an ASUS K55N. The laptop touchpad and buttons do not respond on login screen or in gnome or KDE. When going to settnigs in KDE, under touchpad, it reports Synaptics drive is not installed (or is not used).

    I do have xorg-x11-drv-synaptics installed. I have re-installed it and even tried downgrading it.

    Fedora 21 did not act like this on initial install (a few months ago), but has since stopped. There is a function key to turn on and off the touchpad, but it does not seem to work.

    xinput does not show a touchpad at all. I have tried the solutions mentioned above to no avail. I reloaded the module for synaptics, again no joy.


    What other information do you need posted for this.

    Re: F20 touchpad doesn't work

    Hello,

    Im having the same problem with Fedora 23, when I run $ xinput I got the following


    Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
    ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
    ⎜ ↳ Genius Optical Mouse id=9 [slave pointer (2)]
    ⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Sleep Button id=7 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ USB2.0 HD UVC WebCam id=8 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Asus WMI hotkeys id=10 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard


    As you can see there is not touchpad listed and there is only a mouse which is by the way not working all the time. I'm using an ASUS ROG GL552VW-DH74. Does anyone have any clue ?
