Hi there,

I have been testing Fedora for quite a time and since Fedora 22 my laptop's touchpad is not working. Can you help me to work this out? I am currently running Fedora 26 with 4.12.13-300.fc26.x86_64 Thanks

Look in /proc/bus/input/devices and find all the sections that have a line like H: Handlers=mouse and paste them here.

The kernel is definitely not detecting the touchpad then. If you have windows on that laptop as well could you check that the touchpad works there and if so, check the properties to find out what kind it is. Try running journalctl -b and see if you can see any relevant messages. They would most likely be around the same time as the keyboard is detected. Do you have a touchpad disable button on your keyboard?
