SynPS/2 Synaptic Touchpad recognized but not working in Fedora 29

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

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
