I’m on OpenSuse Tumbleweed on my Acer aspire E1-572g. Yesterday I decided to do just another sudo zypper dup and after the restart, I can’t use my touchpad anymore.
It’s not the first time this happened: Last year it was exactly the same procedure, so I don’t think that it’s a specific update. I solved it last time by not using OpenSuse (not because of this but because of the missing amd driver) and reinstalling it a few weeks ago.
“sudo /usr/sbin/hwinfo --mouse” only recognize my external usb mouse
Even if I unplug my mouse and stay in the logscreen, I still can’t use my touchpad
Synaptics is installed and up-to-date
In Settings->Input Devices I got Keyboard, Mouse and Joystick (which I don’t have and never had connected).
Anybody got an Idea? Thanks for the help already, witchent
Thanks for moving the thread first.
And secondly: I think you can close it, it just started to work again. I did nothing, I didn’t even update my system, but it just started to work again. Thanks anyway

And it is something that only the people tracking tumbleweed would know
about it. Moving the post here was very appropriate
Tumbleweed is on the edge of things
