• Thinkpad E560 - Trackpad not recognized


    I have a new Lenovo Thinkpad E560 and installed Antergos using the latest live cd . Unfortunately the trackpad is not recognized. I tried everythink suggested in (https://forum.antergos.com/topic/4176/trackpad-not-working-anymore), and did some more research, but nothing helped. The keyboard is working without any problems.

    Here’s my output of xinput:

    ⎡ Virtual core pointer                    	id=2	[master pointer  (3)]
    ⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer              	id=4	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎜   ↳ A4Tech USB Optical Mouse                	id=9	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎣ Virtual core keyboard                   	id=3	[master keyboard (2)]

        ↳ Video Bus                               	id=7	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Sleep Button                            	id=8	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Integrated Camera                       	id=10	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard            	id=11	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ ThinkPad Extra Buttons                  	id=12	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    

    Can anyone help me? I am already thinking of installing Windows 10 to check if the trackpad is working at all.

  • Just to clarify things a bit, did the track pad work from the live cd?

    No, it didn’t. I also tried Fedora live, same problem there.

    That didn’t help. Maybe because I am using XFCE? But it didn’t work either with gnome from the live cd.

  • From my quick look around the web, this may be a kernel issue and unrelated to Antergos.

    Thank you. At least I could exclude a hardware problem, the trackpad is working during a win 10 installation.

  • Yesterday I installed all the outstanding updates. To my surprise the trackpad started to work immedately. But after the next reboot everything was the same as before. But at least I know that it could work.
