I'm installing a new laptop and the touchpad is not fully recognized. Specifically, two finger scrolling does not work.
I: Bus=0011 Vendor=0002 Product=0001 Version=0000 N: Name="PS/2 FocalTech FocalTech Touchpad in mouse emulation mode" P: Phys=isa0060/serio1/input0 S: Sysfs=/devices/platform/i8042/serio1/input/input5 U: Uniq= H: Handlers=mouse0 event4 B: PROP=1 B: EV=7 B: KEY=30000 0 0 0 0 B: REL=3
xinput list gives me:

synclient tells me there is no synaptics driver active:
Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded?
So, it seems the touchpad is not recognized as a synaptics touchpad. It works, but not the synaptics specific parts.
It's in mouse emulation mode (no idea what it means). And it works together with other pointing devices, especially the touchscreen (I can confirm this works).
I have tried adding
i8042.nomux=1 to the kernel parameters, but it didn't change anything... Any hint ?
