I have read some answers about enabling touchpad on other laptops, but it does not work in my case. I have listed devices on my laptop and found touchpad.Then I tried to enable it.

xinput set-prop "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" "Device Enabled" 1

However it does not work in my case. I check my properties with

xinput list-props "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"
