The ASUS CX3402 touchpad isn't working properly

after booting void, and fedora linux,the touchpad isn’t recognizing anything apart from my palm, where I only manage to move the cursor and click. What do I do? and is this a driver issue or a hardware issue

Look in logs for the type of touchpad you have -
grep touchpad /var/log/Xorg.0.log

You should see something similar (my touchpad is an Elan model)
