I have upgraded my Dell XPS 13 (2015)to Fedora 25 from 24 and everything is working great (got wifi working and sound) but my trackpad will not register a right click using a two finger click.

Here is my xinput -list xinput -list ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ xwayland-pointer:13 id=6 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ xwayland-relative-pointer:13 id=7 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ xwayland-touch:13 id=9 [slave pointer (2)] ⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)] ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ xwayland-keyboard:13 id=8 [slave keyboard (3)]

The simplest solution I have found is to install gnome-tweak-tool and under the keyoard/mouse section where it says touchpad you can change the click setting to fingers. this enables 2 finger click for right mouse button and 3 finger click for middle button.
