Xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-legacy - not working

People,

Usually when I re-install from scratch from a Fedora Live USB to my Zenbook, I have to re-setup the touch pad by installing the above rpm and restoring the appropriate conf file with:

rsync -av /home/readme/50-synaptics.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/

However with SB I can’t get the touchpad taps working:

rpm-ostree status

gives:

● ostree://fedora:fedora/30/x86_64/silverblue

LayeredPackages: xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-legacy

but:

synclient TapButton1=1 TapButton2=3 TapButton3=2

gives:

Couldn’t find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded?

How do I fix this?

Thanks,
Phil.

After a couple more reboots this starting working - I don’t know why it didn’t work after the first reboot?
