Hello.I'm having problems with my Synaptic touch pad in a HP EliteBook 8460p after I installed a Sixaxis controller (Dualshock 3 from ps3).The first time
I installed the device it was connected via USB and after that i configure it via bluetooth, it works fine in both ways.The problem is (i think)
xinput, that for some reason deleted the synaptics config in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/.Now instead of 50-synaptics.conf there is a 50-wacom.conf
and the touch pad behaves like a drawing tablet (the pointer acquire the position of your finger in the touch pad).

Code: [Select]
[user@pc xorg.conf.d]$ xinput
⎡ Virtual core pointer                    id=2 [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer              id=4 [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ PS/2 Generic Mouse                      id=10 [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad              id=11 [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                    id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard              id=5 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                            id=6 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus                                id=7 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Sleep Button                            id=8 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard            id=9 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ HP WMI hotkeys                          id=12 [slave  keyboard (3)]

xinput shows the Synaptics TouchPad
but in [code]/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/[code/] there is no config file for it

[code][user@pc xorg.conf.d]$ ls
10-evdev.conf  10-quirks.conf  50-joystick.conf  50-wacom.conf  nvidia-drm-outputclass.conf

Is there a way to regenerate the files in xorg.config.d based on the installed software?

on a live cd system the touchpad works perfect
