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/modprobe.d and /etc/modules-load.d but it is still not working.

In the configuration files, I simply wrote the module name psmouse and edited rc.local and modules.conf in /etc with:

modprobe -r psmouse
modprobe psmouse proto=imps

None of this worked so far. Any ideas?
