I have installed CentOS 7.2 in my Dell Vostro 15 laptop (Dual booted alongside Windows 8). For some reason, I can't use my Touchpad at all. None of the features of Touchpad (Pointer movement, left/right click) is working.
I have checked if Synaptics Driver is installed. The command
$ yum list installed | grep synaptics
xorg-x11-drv-synaptics.x86_64 1.8.2-1.el7 @base xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-devel.x86_64 1.8.2-1.el7 @base
$ xinput list
