The title says it all. I just installed CentOS 8 on my laptop and the touchpad isn't working. Like many, I hate the touchpad but for times like when I'm on an airplane there often isn't room for a mouse.
Speaking of a mouse, my USB mouse works just fine... just don't have the same luck with the touchpad. I tried running
command not found...
So I ran
yum search synaptics
No matches found.
So I ran
less /proc/bus/input/devices | grep -i touch N: Name="ELAN1300:00 04F3:3057 Touchpad"
A ha! Perhaps we are on to something here.
So I ran the following five commands and didn't get any output:
lspci | grep -i elan lspci | grep -i touch lsusb | grep -i elan lsusb | grep -i touch lsmod | grep -i elan
Are there any other commands I should run which would shed some light on what is going on?
When I Google "elan touchpad linux driver" I cannot find squat. Is there a fix and/or a driver/package/etc., out there for this device?
