Hello,

Originally, I installed with a hardened profile a few weeks ago. At that time, /proc/bus/input/devices showed my touchpad as an Elantech ETPS/2. Configuring the kernel with PS/2 support and the Elantech PS/2 driver got it working with no additional steps.

After deciding to switch to a desktop profile instead, now the mouse is listed as a PS/2 Generic Mouse, and I had to add a module option for psmouse "proto=imps" for even basic functionality to come back.

The computer is a https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Lenovo_Yoga_2_11-inch

I have set INPUT_DEVICES="evdev synaptics" in make.conf

xinput also lists a PS/2 Generic

I can't imagine full command output being useful but happy to post any logs...just not sure what you'd need. 99% of my experience with linux is on headless servers...I always let a binary distro deal with my desktops, but time to learn!

Thanks!!!

EDIT: It's probably worth noting, I am still using the hardened kernel....I can't imagine that being the difference, but happy to change.
Also, strangely tap to click seems to work now where it didn't before.

The actual MAIN issue is that I don't have any way to scroll, but other sources suggest this would be resolved if the right driver was loading.

EDIT: This was solved when I realized I had set noauto to the /boot entry in fstab. Thus, my kernel builds were all going into the *directory* /boot and not to the *partition* lol :oops: :D :roll:
