Thanks for your report. Can you please attach your installer's sylog
file (maybe compressed) in a group-reply? It can be found under the

I would expect a synaptics touchpad to get at least basic support with
evdev, and maybe there's a bug somwhere to be fixed. But maybe I'm out
of sync with reality. :)
Also, wondering whether it would make sense to maybe have a synaptics
udeb at some point? Or maybe libinput will save us all?
Putting -x@ in cc for input (no pun intended).
