I installed plasma5-session on openSUSE 13.2 64bit. Installation went smooth without errors. When I log in to Plasma 5, my touchpad settings were overridden. I guess it explains as KDE4 was replaced. However, I cannot find any GUI utility to re-configure the touchpad. There is only “Mouse Controls” in the KDE Control Module.
Did you add any additional repos or are you using Plasma5 as included in 13.2?
I think the touchpad config module was not part of Plasma5 in 5.2.2 (as available in 13.2) yet. You might have to install kcm-touchpad5 manually in this case.
And make sure that you run systemsettings5, not KDE4’s systemsettings.

Yes, that was it
I installed kcm-touchpad5 and ran systemsettings5. Then Hardware > Input

To answer the earlier question, no, I didn’t add additional repos.
Installed as it is in 13.2.
The config module was “integrated” into Plasma5 in 5.3, which might get released as update for 13.2 too or not. I have no idea what the current plans are.
But kcm-touchpad5 is available in 13.2 anyway. It’s just a pre-release version, but AFAIK it’s basically identical to the one included in 5.3.0.
Press Alt+F2, or start Konsole, and enter “systemsettings5”.
But if this is a fresh installation, you should only have systemsettings5 anyway.
And please elaborate what “same issue” you have.
The OP was running openSUSE 13.2 and Plasma 5.2 and did not have the touchpad settings module installed. In current versions (i.e. in Leap 42.1 too), the touchpad settings are integrated into plasma5-desktop, so if you use Plasma5, they should be available in any case.
