Hi,

Fixing this is non trivial, supporting these new touchpads likely needs a signicant amount of work (for details see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1110011 ).

In the mean time, I can provide a workaround which should make the touchpad work in ps/2 mouse emulation mode (so no 2 finger scrolling, etc.), and stop it from interfering with an external mouse.

Sounds good? Try booting with "psmouse.proto=bare" on the kernel cmdline.

See: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/KernelBootParameters for how to add a parameter to the kernel commandline.

Regards,

Hans
