[Bug 1565094] Re: Touchpad does not send events


I tested with the latest upstream kernel[0].

Unfortunately I still have to manually blacklist i2c_hid for the
touchpad to work, which is at least some steps less than described

  Touchpad does not send events

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The device "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" is detected and all
  modules/drivers are loaded but is not sending any events.

  Attached is the output of

  cat /proc/bus/input/devices
  sudo evtest /dev/input/event7 (after clicking and trying to move the cursor of course)
  xinput list-props 13

  The touchpad works with Ubuntu 14.04 (not sure about the kernel
  version) and is working fine in some of the built-in recovery-
  functions. I tried the obvious fn-key-combo for locking the touchpad,
  but it did not make a difference. USB-Mouse is working fine.
