SLED 12 SP2 touchpad not working...

I won’t tell you how much disappointed I am with SLED 12 SP 2, I bought : while openSUSE and SLED’s installer are able to detect the synaptics touchpad, after boot SLED is unable to make it work. More, GSynaptics is missing from the official depots… And those are only the few examples just after the first boot !!!

How could this be a serious distribution when it won’t run as good as the community’s one ???

Even if SUSE is the MOST valuable distribution, that post needs not answer. That post is only the expression of disappointment. SUSE’s people should think more instead of recording COOL Youtube’s videos… WORK MEN !

You do realize that you can raise an SR if you have an active registration?

Is xf86-input-synaptics installed?

What is your hardware?

hwinfo --mouse

I have a DELL 5555 here and synaptics is working fine?

Hello Malcolm,
I don’t want to waste your time on that point but I must thank you for your reply. Yes, I do realize that if I do an install with the 12SP2 it won’t detect as 12SP1 or Leap 42.1. I do realize too that the installer is able to provide a configuration that it won’t respect after its job is done…

Yes it is (Version : 1.8.3-3.7)

What is your hardware?

Again, I do thank you to have spent some time on that post but i don’t want to waste your time. The solution I found is to switch for another distro because there is no reason not to support the good job done by others.
