On my Arch Linux the touchpad stopped working (I assume after an update). After reinstalling Arch it still doesn't work.
I checked the following things:
- The touchpad is not disabled in the BIOS, since it works when I install Ubuntu (or use an Ubuntu live USB)
xf86-input-synapticsis installed. The last time this was automatically installed but even after manually installing the touchpad does not work
- I also copied the files from /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ as some sources say this can be needed for the touchpad to work
xorgmeta package is installed and I use i3wm. So there is no switch to wayland or something that broke it.
When I use
xinput list I get the following output. The touchpad is not listed.
