Hello, i have problem, i have touchpad but it's not synaptics touchpad, but when i enable touchpad use flag for plasma-desktop, emerge add xf86-input-synaptics driver.
Is it possible to prevent that ? Because I think that's what's blocking the configuration of my touchpad in the configuration settings

Code:
fulgurance@MSI-GS73VR-6RF ~ $ sudo emerge --ask plasma-desktop

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild  N     ] x11-drivers/xf86-input-synaptics-1.9.0
[ebuild   R    ] kde-plasma/plasma-desktop-5.11.4  USE="touchpad*"

Would you like to merge these packages? [Yes/No]

It is still possible that plasma-desktop[touchpad] is useful to you even though you don't have a synaptics touchpad. It just needs some of its headers to build.

Have you tried with the "libinput" driver? See https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Libinput
I do not use KDE, though.

I see... Do you get any errors in the log files regarding the touchpad?
Have you tried configuring the touchpad via command line? Maybe that could be a work around instead of using the KDE utility.

It seems like people are talking past each other here. The touchpad works, it's just the control panel you want, correct? Try installing x11-misc/libinput-gestures[kde] instead.
