My touchpad has been working until suddenly it stopped detecting input, or button clicks. If I run
lsinput, I see that it is in fact detected.

If I go into mouse settings, there is only my USB mouse there, no touchpad. I don't want to use my laptop with only a USB mouse. Help?
EDIT: Touchpad settings DO appear in mouse settings. They weren't there last time I checked. Interesting.
