Fedora 26 - Touchpad doesn't work

Hi! I'm completely new to Fedora, installed Fedora 26 (Twenty Six) on my Acer Aspire F5-573-56GH. In live USB it was all OK. After boot, touchpad works and also after login, but in few minutes system tells, that some part of it failed, but doesn't have enough data to report a bug, the cursor stops moving and click doesn't work either and I have to use external mouse.

The cursor doesn't move when using touchpad (sometimes it shakes a bit, when trying to use it). I suppose it's emulating click, cos e.g. in Kate or other editors it changes cursor position.

Any idea how to solve this?

Thanks in advance

I have a very similar model (E5-575G-5580) and it works just fine.

You have to configure touch click on Preferences->Hardware->Mouse->Touchpad.

Check "Enable Touchpad" and also check "Enable mouse clicks with touchpad".

Also review the two-finger and three-finger click emulation options.

Well, It works only few min after login and then tells "Some system part crashed" and it stops :/
