Trackpad stopped working after update

I received a notification this morning telling me there were updates available. I clicked reboot and install. The Librem has rebooted with a non working trackpad.

That Librem is a month old and I have not tweaked the system, it’s PureOS. So I thought if this happened to me it must have happened to more people. I should probably ask here before I start fiddling with the system.

Has it happened to anyone? Should I wait for another update? Or is it just me and I should try to debug that?


I must mention the Fn-F1 key that disables the track pad. Perhaps it is disabled?

@purism121 thanks for this highly technical explanation. After lots of efforts I finally got through it.
(read: yes that was just a matter of hitting Fn-F1… facepalm :smile: )
