Installing with Fedora-Workstation-netinst-x86_64-26-1.5.iso downloaded today on a Dell XPS 13 9360 (bios 1.3.2), and the touchpad does not work (no cursor movements).
libinput-list-devices (version is 1.7.3):
Device: SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad
Seat: seat0, default
Tap drag lock: disabled
Middle emulation: disabled
Scroll methods: *two-finger edge
Click methods: *button-areas clickfinger
Accel profiles: none
PS: not entirly sure what is the best product to file this in
This happened to me on all DELL machines that I tested here. In all cases the touchpad works completely fine after the installation completes.
How is this a kernel issue? The touchpad has been detected by the kernel, and the input device is obviously there according to udev.
I run into similar issues trying to use a USB mouse, it simply does not work (this was a Fedora 25 netinstall right now).
We apologize for the inconvenience. There is a large number of bugs to go through and several of them have gone stale. The kernel moves very fast so bugs may get fixed as part of a kernel update. Due to this, we are doing a mass bug update across all of the Fedora 26 kernel bugs.
Fedora 26 has now been rebased to 4.15.4-200.fc26. Please test this kernel update (or newer) and let us know if you issue has been resolved or if it is still present with the newer kernel.
If you have moved on to Fedora 27, and are still experiencing this issue, please change the version to Fedora 27.
If you experience different issues, please open a new bug report for those.
