Touchpad re-enables itself after opening laptop
Last modified: 2017-09-05 05:35:47 EDT
Description of problem:
The touchpad on my ThinkPad X1 Carbon 3rd Gen re-enables itself after opening the laptop lid.
The touchpad is disabled in the BIOS and GNOME. After opening the lid the touchpad responds but GNOME's mouse settings dialog still thinks it is disabled.
I noticed that libinput-debug-events shows POINTER_MOTION events while the touchpad is successfully disabled in GNOME and the on-screen mouse cursor isn't moving. Perhaps libinput or a higher layer of the stack "forgets" to ignore the touchpad after the lid has been opened?
This is a F26 regression, previous Fedora releases worked fine. I am using Wayland.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Disable touchpad in BIOS and GNOME mouse settings.
2. Verify that the touchpad does not respond.
3. Close laptop lid and reopen.
4. Test if the touchpad responds.
Touchpad does not respond.
