    Dell Inspiron 13 7378 2-in-1 touch pad intermittently stops working

    An annoying problem has arisen for me, every once in a while my touch pad just decides to not work, A reboot brings it back, it didn't happen after an update, either that or I don't remember. Anyways, just the touch pad fails, the buttons still work, and also the touchscreen still works. Just no pointer. I'm at a loss where to start to diagnose this. any suggestions?

    I would first check this out: https://www.dell.com/support/article...ue-fix?lang=en
    Having multiple touchpad devices running confuses syndaemon.
    Also check to just see if this instaled:
    Code:
    apt policy touchegg
    Don't install it just yet, just check.

    Sorry I had plum forgot about you.
    Yep 2Drivers install touchegg now.
    Code:
    sudo apt install touchegg
    Tweak the settings to see if this will disable one.
