(The problem seems to have appeared after a recent 17.10 update. Touchpad has been working on 17.10 previously.)

Touchpad on Toshiba L645D is unresponsive, but USB mouse is OK. Touchpad OK under Windows 10.

$ synclient
Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded?

$ xinput list
