Hi, I'm new to the Fedora OS.. I've used Windows 7 before... I haven't used Linux at all.. I tried out Fedora (version 19 I think) yesterday, which my friend gave me (he uses Ubuntu 13.04... but i liked fedora more)... But the Synaptics Touchpad on my Wipro EGO laptop did not work at all.. It did not respond at all.. I called him up and he asked me to post a question here... Today morning I tried Dual-booting Windows and Fedora... Windows detected my Touchpad very well... Surprisingly, fedora did too... I was happy using fedora... everything worked... But after restarting fedora now, touchpad is not working again... But it works only after going to Windows and coming back to fedora... I'm planning of erasing the disk and installing only fedora... but I want my touchpad to work too... My friend told me to include these outputs:

xinput list (before windows boot) --

xinput list (after windows boot) --

/var/log/Xorg.0.log (before windows boot) --

/var/log/Xorg.0.log (after windows boot) --

i have the same problem , first see the mouse setting in system setting and enable touchpad if there is no touch setting or something like that , install gnome-tweak-tools and run that .there is an option to fix touchpad.

Yes.. 'there are no settings for touchpad in system settings at all... Gnome-Tweak-Tools only shows an option to indicate the location of pointer... nothing else... :(
