    Lenovo Flex 2-14! Touchpad and Fedora 28

    Hello,

    I have this laptop, Lenovo Flex 2-14! and the Touchpad does not work.

    That means, I have to use a USB mouse because I cannot click or scroll using the touchpad.

    The laptop is equipped with:
    cat /proc/bus/input/devices | grep ETPS
    N: Name="ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad"

    I am running Fedora 28 with all updates, in fact I just now did dnf install update.

    Your help in this matter will be greatly appreciated.

    Which kernel are you running? I had a similar experience with a new Dell Inspiron model - trackpad did not work with the default kernel in Linux Mint, but worked fine with the later kernel in Manjaro. You could try running Manjaro* off a usb stick and see if that works. If it works, there's probably a way to run a newer kernel in Fedora (in the Debian/Ubuntu-based ecosystem there's a kernel management tool called UKUU that lets users switch kernels. I'm too new to Fedora to know what the equivalent is..)

    [*EDIT: I'm suggesting Manjaro because one of the distribution's goals is to feature the most up to date packages. But there might be other equally/better suited distros that would work for you too..]
