Hello,

I am struggling with a Dell Latitude 5280 Touchpad.
I do not find the corresponding kernel option, so currently the touchpad is dead.

Already I am not so sure about the brand, as lspci / lsusb does not list something that resembles to a touchpad:
Code:

root@coral:~ # lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Device 5904 (rev 02)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 5916 (rev 02)

root@coral:~ # lsusb
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 8087:0a2b Intel Corp.
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0bda:5650 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
Bus 001 Device 032: ID 045e:0745 Microsoft Corp. Nano Transceiver v1.0 for Bluetooth
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub



According to:
https://certification.ubuntu.com/catalog/component/input/4932/input%3ADLL07A6%3A01044E%3A120B/ the brand is Aquantia Corp. DLL07A6:01 044E:120B
(Never heard of them :-/ )

Thanks in advance!
Keen

To spice the answer up a bit, Dell prefers ALPS over Synaptics. A couple of years ago that was a pain in the a.. but works quite nice nowadays.

Confirmed, works fine now ! Thank you very much !

P.S.: I was a bit skeptical first, due to the model number mismatch.
