touchpad issue

Postby steveo314 » Thu Jan 12, 2017 16:11

I did a system upgrade yesterday and rebooted my machine. After rebooting and trying to login I found that my touchpad was not longer working. And it was working just fine before the upgrade. Was there a touchpad driver update in the updates recently? I didn't get to see what all was upgraded as I was not able to sit at my machine the whole time. Or is there a config file I could check? Any help would be appreciated.

Does (did) your machine use the synaptics driver? The up-to-date SL installation I'm using at the moment does not have a touchpad; nevertheless it still has the synaptics driver (xf86-input-synaptics) installed and has not changed to the libinput driver (x11-drivers/xf86-input-libinput):
