Mousepad doesn't work on Lenovo IdeaPad5

The mousepad on Lenovo IdeaPad5 doesn’t work.
I have Fedora32 and upgraded to the latest kernel 5.9.11-100.fc32.x86_64

It seems like this is a driver problem. Some forums suggest the module elants_i2c is wrongfully loaded, however as far as I can see that module is not loaded in fedora.

Is there a fix for this?

Check if there is any change when you load/blacklist the following modules:


Thank you for your reply.

By default I see that:
ideapad_laptop is loaded
ideapad_slidebar is not loaded

I blacklisted ideapad_laptop and booted - nothing changed.
I modprobed ideapad_slidebar - I got this message:
“modprobe: ERROR: could not insert ‘ideapad_slidebar’: No such device”
In dmesg this line was added:
“ideapad_slidebar: DMI does not match”

Does that help?
