After every reboot, I need to run
sudo rmmod psmouse and
sudo modprobe -v psmouse to re-enable the touchpad. Otherwise, double finger scrolling doesn't work and only a few areas of the pad work, much like a mouse,
xinput list-props "ID" also shows the touchpad using
libinput instead of
synaptics and the system settings displays "Touchpad not found".
I tried adding configuration files in
/etc/modules-load.d but it is still not working.
In the configuration files, I simply wrote the module name
psmouse and edited
modprobe -r psmouse modprobe psmouse proto=imps
None of this worked so far. Any ideas?
