I have just installed my gentoo with X11/Gnome. It works fine with the USB-Mouse, but neither the touchpad nor the trackpoint works.

The docs I found seemed to be outdated and were not mentioning the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d. The laptop I am using is an Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E320. synaptics is in the USE and the driver is installed.


Turns out I had disabled PS/2 mouse support in the kernel, because, as was my rationale, my laptop lacks a PS/2 plug.

Works good now.
