[Bug 1218973] Re: [Dell XPS 12-9Q33] Touchpad not recognized


Hi Dreas:

Quick steps from memory.

1. make/make install of hid-rmi
2. Manually run 'sudo depmod -a' (wouldn't find it without this step). 
3. Ensure that you can modprobe it and that its found now, if so proceed. No point proceeding unless you get this sorted.
4. Ensured that i2c_hid wasn't blacklisted and was loading.
5. Created /etc/modprobe.d/hid-rmi.conf as follows:

install hid_rmi rmmod hid_generic ;  modprobe --ignore-install hid_rmi

6. Reboot and make sure all was loading. (If correct both touchscreen
will work and touchpad will register correctly under System
Settings->Mouse - otherwise touchpad just appears as regular mouse unter
System Settings->Mouse)
