    If you did "other things" you should either recount specifically what you tried or include a link reference to the previous thread.

    It looks like your touchpad is recognized.
    It also looks like you have another "real" mouse attached (now?), so is that how you're using your laptop?

    Do you have your synaptics packages installed? You can run the following from a root console which will check for this, and if it's not already installed will install those packages. If something installs, after install and shutdown. Remove any external mouse, boot and check your touchpad again
    Code:
    zypper in gsynaptics xf86-input-synaptics
    TSU

    Default Re: My touchpad doesn't seem to work no matter what i do.

    In the "System" section of the Plasma 5 Control Bar, is the "Touchpad" entry activated?
    In addition, if you click on the "Touchpad" entry, is the border of the Touchpad diagram black?
    If it's gray, then your Touchpad is deactivated.

    Has anyone any ideas as to when the Touchpad controls which were present in Plasma 4 will become available in Plasma 5?
    Things like:
    • Mouse detection deactivates the Touchpad;
    • General Touchpad setups such as:
      • Border actions/behavior;
      • Sensitivity to finger pressure;
      • Three finger Tap is the same as middle Mouse key: insert . . .

    The only unusual setting that I notice you have is
    Code:
     TouchpadOff             = 2
    which means tapping and scrolling are switched off
    Code:
      Option "TouchpadOff" "integer"
                  Switch off the touchpad.  Valid values are:
    
                  0   Touchpad is enabled
                  1   Touchpad is switched off (physical clicks still work)
                  2   Only tapping and scrolling is switched off
                  When  the touchpad is switched off, button events caused by a physical button press are still interpreted. On
                  a ClickPad, this includes software-emulated middle and right buttons as defined by the  SoftButtonAreas  set-
                  ting.
    Try doing
    Code:
    synclient TouchpadOff=0
    Any difference?
