Description of problem:

I recently installed Fedora 23 Workstation in a  ASUS ROG GL552VW-DH74, this resulted in problems with the touchpad and the mouse.

The touchpad is not working at all and an external mouse is working only when I restard the system with the mouse plugged on it.

I did the evtest to checked out what was the problem but the touchpad is not even listed as an event. The output is the following:

Any touchpad is listed there, I also ran $ xinput  getting:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
The kernel version is : 4.2.8-300.fc23.x86_64

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ cat /proc/bus/input/devices
2. $ xinput
3. The touchpad neither detected or working

Actual results:
The mousepad is not working at all, and the mouse just works when it is plugged before power on the computer.

Expected results:
the touchpad should be working at any time, as weel as the mouse.guiguidogui

Additional info:
According to this page  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingTouchpadDetection
 this is due to a kernel problem, a similar problem is found at Bug 1256314 - Touchpad won't work n HP Pavilion x360 11-n001ng https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1256314

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2016-11-24 09:32:04 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '23'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2016-12-20 12:24:25 EST
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
