I recently formatted the Laptop and installed Fedora 20.

Since then my touch pad is not working.

I checked in Settings>Mouse.

Touch Pad is not listed there.

How do i fix this

Please help

Which package of fedora you have installed gnome/kde or anything else, fedora 20 have two versions and 32bit and 64 bit not 33bit please edit your question. In all settings there is an option mouse&touchpad it comes by default with above mentioned 32&64 bit versions if you don't have this option I suggest you to reinstall fedora again. There might be some error occurred during the installation and my advice is try the 64bit version.

Hello Sir,

I think its Gnome.and I have installed 32 bit version of fedora.

Also ran Yum update to keep everything uptodate.

Not sure how to proceed further as it detects my laptop keypad.
