Thread: No touchpad after booting up

  1. #1

    Default No touchpad after booting up

    Hi,

    My touch pad (Dell inspiron 15 5555) doesn't work after my Leap boots up, in the first 10-20 seconds it works but suddenly it stops working.
    I also had this issue during the installation, at first I had touch pad but after a couple of seconds it stopped working.
    I don't have this problem in Tumbleweed.
    I also read about it but couldn't find any solution for that.

    any help would be appreciated .

    Thanks

    Please write which GUI you're using: KDE, GNOME, something else?

    Please note the Touchpad issue noted in the Leap 42.3 Release Notes: <https://doc.opensuse.org/release-not...USE/Leap/42.3/> Section "2.1.2 Synaptics Touchpad Driver with KDE Plasma".

    I'm using KDE,
    but I didn't have touch pad during setup as well.
    I do have touchpad in Tumbleweed and also in Kubuntu.

    I also took a look at this thread https://askubuntu.com/questions/5929...nsive-touchpad, hoping find some clues, but didn't work out.

    What should I do?

    THanks

    Since you report no problems with TW, perhaps upgrading the kernel (for your Leap install) will help here.

    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/stable/standard/ kernel
    Code:
    zypper ref
    Code:
    zypper dup -r kernel
    then reboot, and check touchpad behaviour
