Touchpad problems on thinkpad x240

I have installed Manjaro gnome for a few weeks
everything works very well
I come from using linuxmint cinnamon for several years and it turned out to be a very nice delicacy

I have problems with the touchpad, I have tried several lts kernels but the problem continues

when starting the system with wayland, everything works perfectly, with two fingers the scroll, with three fingers the desktop is passed, all very well

the problem is when closing the lid and resuming the work, it is no longer good
the two fingers do not scroll and if you scroll with three fingers in kernel 5.15
with kernel 5.10 I can’t work anything on the touchpad

is this because it requires some configuration that I have to do separately?

I leave you the information of my hardware

Thank you very much for your quick response

there they recommend installing

If I am in Wayland, is this option also installed?

no, it didn’t work for me
when installing it, it may conflict with libinput, but the trakpad did not work

Is a known old issue for your laptop model and happens the same in different distros too.

thanks for your help.

install different kernels and with the 5.4 it is now working fine, with all the functions of the trackpad

yesterday I updated the system and the touchpad stopped working correctly

the same mistake of lifting the laptop lid, the touchpad does not work
try kernel 5.15, 5.10 and 5.4

There are some particular settings that you should review?
because restarting the system works perfectly

the problem followed me
searching, I found to share what appears to be the final solution

with these commands:

sudo modprobe -r psmouse
sudo modprobe psmouse

Thank you all,
greetings from Buenos Aires
