Hello. I have a MSI PS42 laptop running Fedora 29 but touchpad doesn't work. What is strange is that touchpad is recognized, as it is shown by libinput list-devices command:

Device:           SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad
Kernel:           /dev/input/event6
Group:            10
Seat:             seat0, default
Size:             96x53mm
Capabilities:     pointer gesture
Tap-to-click:     disabled
Tap-and-drag:     enabled
Tap drag lock:    disabled
Left-handed:      disabled
Nat.scrolling:    disabled
Middle emulation: disabled
Calibration:      n/a
Scroll methods:   *two-finger edge 
Click methods:    *button-areas clickfinger 
Disable-w-typing: enabled
Accel profiles:   none

In Gnome's control panel (Mouse section) touchpad appears too.

So everything seems ok but cursor doesn't move and clicks aren't done.

Have you any clues? Thanks a lot

Have you checked with touchpad enable and disable key in your keyboard?
