    Kernel 4.11 breaks right click on Touchpad DELL 3542 (Synaptic)

    Kernel 4.10 recognises touchpad as DLL0651:00 06CB:2985 and am able to use right-click using the physical button.
    Kernel 4.11 recognises touchpad as Synaptics s3203 but the right click button does not physically work.

    I had the same issue on Opensuse tumbleweed when they updated their kernel to 4.11.

    I have copied xinput list-props from both kernels and found that I am losing capabilities. (The numbers represent kernel version)

    Thanks

    I am facing the same problem after updating from 4.10 to 4.11 on arch linux.
    Possibly a bug with touchpad drivers

    I looked on http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa...11-rc1/CHANGES and found

    "HID: rmi: Make hid-rmi a transport driver for synaptics-rmi4"
    "HID: rmi: Handle all Synaptics touchpads using hid-rmi"

    Perhaps this is what caused this bug to occur for hid_rmi? https://lkml.org/lkml/2017/3/28/1234
