3 finger gestures not working after closing laptop lid

I’m making another post about my crappy laptop that doesn’t play well with Linux. Every time I close my laptop and open it, the 3 finger gestures stop working. The touchpad recognizes 2 finger inputs, and on a restart, it recognizes 3 finger inputs. After closing the lid and opening it again, it doesn’t recognize 3 fingers. I’m using an MSI GS65 and I’m pretty close to ditching it for another laptop that works better with Fedora but I’d rather not do that.

Hi, may be you want to read this kernel.org doc on part Restrictions of the lid state change notifications. May be this is what happen to your laptop. My suggestion just disable the lid usinggnome-tweaks on tab “General”, then disable “Suspend when laptop lid is closed”.
