    [Honor] Touchpad not working most of the time

    Hello,

    I have a new laptop since 6 months and testing ubuntu/linux for the first time and I love it. But since few weeks, the touchpad is bugging a lot. It randomly stop to work for the X Y directions and most of the time click is also unavailable. I didnt update or download anything at this time so i have no clue how/when it started bugging. I need to wait, seconds but mostly minutes, and restarting computer always solve the problem, for a short period of time sadly. So i'm pretty sure its software.

    When I connect a mouse, this one is working perfectly.

    PC Portable Honor MagicBook 15.6" IntelCore i5 11e Gen
    Ubuntu 20.04.03 LTS
    All apt update and upgrade done.

    I need your help ! Thanks

    Have you submitted already your hardware to Linux Organization? You should have too because Linux hardware will recommend you the best software application for your hardware device.
    I have this HP laptop and I decided to install Linux Ubuntu Operating System and the first time I've install it I have encountered lots of hardware problem and some of the hardware
    in my HP laptop device needs additional application to work properly. So I decided to submit my laptop hardware device to Linux then the Linux Organization replied the recommended
    software application to install to work those hardware that is not functioning properly. Until now it my Hp laptop works smoothly without any problem.

    Hey, thanks for your answer !

    I did the probe from linux-hardware, and here it is:
    https://linux-hardware.org/?probe=aa91f5be6e

    I dont really know how to handle with that, it seem there is no upgrade or new driver to add, but i may miss something here.

    Thanks for your time !

    Same issue, but I blame old age. My current laptop was bought in 2013. I simply plugged a mouse and voilà!

    I bought mine few months ago and model is not that old !

    Do you guys think its software (so I can fix it) or hardware (so I need to send it back to shop, but its absolutely not convenient to me) ?

    Intel 11th Generation Processors are still quite new.

    Why not try Ubuntu 21.04 to see if there is an improvement.
    Failing that Ubuntu 21.10 will be released on October 14 2021
