So, since updating to Linux Kernel 5.4 and up, my Touchpad on my Lenovo Ideapad 720s15IKB is not longer responding.
dmesg | grep touch dont show any longer the Device, like it is disappered from the System.
Due to the fact that i need the Touchpad working, i am now running it on the 5.3.7 Kernel for now, but i could need help to fix it. Using the Gnome Firmware Tool i could see it is detected as some “Synaptics”-Device, but also there arent any Firmware-Updates.
So, i hope someone with more knowledge of Kernel and driver than me can help me so i can get the Touchpad on the newer versions running.
No knowledge. Try this link:
The Wiki: Troubleshooting. Look for Touchpad not detected at all section.
The Kernel Parameters listed there dont solved it.
I have checked also the
/proc/bus/input/devices file, which also dont list the Touchpad in the current Kernel, so i expect somthing in the drivers or like this, but like I said, I dont know how or where the problem lies.
Did your tried to use
grep -i touch (case insensitive)?
Used it, but it is the same case as before:
On the 5.3.7 Kernel it shows the Touchpad, but not on the 5.4 Kernel, so it has definitly to do something with a change in the Kernel.
When using 5.3.7, the Touchpad is the following:
$ dmesg | grep touch
[ 4.945518] hid-multitouch 0018:06CB:7F8D.0001: input,hidraw0: I2C HID v1.00 Mouse [MSFT0001:00 06CB:7F8D] on i2c-MSFT0001:00
$ cat /proc/bus/input/devices | grep -i touch
N: Name="MSFT0001:00 06CB:7F8D Touchpad"
