Trackpad problems

I’m using a Dell Chromebook 5190 2 in 1 with Void Linux and a full rom installed but my trackpad does not work. External mouses and even the touchscreen (on xfce) works fine but if I use my trackpad nothing happens (only if I try really hard it moves once to a random side of the screen I didn’t intend for it to go to.) Time, keyboard, Wifi and audio all work fine so I don’t understand why the trackpad doesn’t.

What is the board name?

I have also recently installed void using the xfce distribution onto a blooglet motherboard hp Chromebook 14a and am having the same issue

I did previously get my trackpad to work with arch Linux, but decided to switch to void
My power button on my keyboard is also not working, but a simple Ctrl+esc and navigating the xfce menu to power down. I may have improperly set the keyboard layout during install as I do not think I actually set one as I assumed it would work with the default

I actually have a weirder issue than I thought as using a larger portion of my finger (all of the end joint section) will allow me to move the mouse somewhat it’s just finicky and only sometimes works, so I might just need to increase how sensitive it is to touch somehow

Try troubleshooting with libinput. It helps to have the latest libinput package in case some quirks were added for your touchpad but aren’t yet in your distro’s repos.

I just tried troubleshooting Libinput and decided that my most likely issue was that the quirks for my touchpad were not found which was true and there was no quirk, so I followed the steps for finding what the pressure quirk should be, which was going great until I realized that the libinput measuring tools used in this process have some python dependencies that I don’t have (these are also not listed anywhere for my distribution).
I might try to just guess what my pressure should be based off of the existing ones for other chromebooks.
If I needed info on Libinput dependencies should I ask the void Linux or Libinput forms? It seems that Libinput measure has had issues with the dependencies for it getting added and removed from the main package dependencies since like 2019

Or you can install Fedora for testing and install libinput-utils - Fedora Packages

in the end I ended up switching to arch, which gives the following from libinput list-devices: Device: Elan Touchpad
