Fixing Fujitsu UH572 touchpad on Fedora

Oct 12, 2015 Fedora

…that’s a lot of F-words. Here’s the thing. Open the grub config file:

sudo su
vim /etc/default/grub

Find the line starting with GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX. Add i8042.notimeout i8042.nomux to the parameters; save and close. Finally, update grub and reboot:

grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg
#          NOT -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

And now the touchpad works as it should!
