Hey, I have a weird problem. I have a Lenovo ThinkPad laptop with both touchpad and trackpad. The touchpad works fine, but every time I install fedora I have to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-thinkpad.conf to make sure the functions of the trackpad work properly. However, now when I turn the computer on, there's a slight chance the trackpad will not work and the only solution I found was rebooting the whole system. The touchpad will always work no matter what, but not the trackpad, it's completely disabled. It happens randomly. Sometimes it won't happen in a week, sometimes it will happen twice a day if I'm rebooting. Same thing happens with different shells and even distros. Is there anything I could do to prevent this annoying thing?
