Trying to follow the forum guide but also writing this on my phone so apologies if I miss anything or its not quite 1 for 1.
Lenovo Yoga Slim 7
Unlocked Bios with S3 enabled
6 core AMD Ryzen 5 4500U Zen 2
Full AMD retpoline
Downloaded the iso went to install no touch pad. Thought maybe it was a bad iso
Searched saw someone with a Toshiba saying edit a conf file and another say they had a Lenovo and it was fine.
Redownloaded iso as a torrent formatted the usb before using Etcher and flashed.
Boot all looks OK still no touch pad
Seat 0 default
Capability pointer gesture
Tap and drag enabled all other options disabled
Accel profile flat adaptive
Scroll method and click method both correct
What is stopping it from working ?
Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, OpenSuse all worked out of the box.
Would really like to try this distro but I Sort of need the touchpad.
Still trying to find my feet with Linux but thought this project looked amazing thanks for any help you can provide.
Search your model, maybe you must downgrade your BIOS.
Thank you for your reply
Yes I did see that but that is for the pro model mine is the model above in that list, the ryzen 5 model not ryzen 7. The post suggests everything should be fine apart from the suspend issue but I have fixed that by enabling s3.
Any thoughts as to what could be the cause? If I boot straight back into fedora 34 everything is fine
If there are any commands I can run that would provide more detail to help I can do that too I'm just unsure where to look.
Please write the exact Lenovo name for the helpers

Please try with this blacklist
My new laptop suffered from the same issue. I tried the DKMS way which worked just alright. But I did not want to patch my kernel for that if there is a better way - adding this in case someone needs it:
Create a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
Insert blacklist elan_i2c
Thanks but I'm not sure how to do that from the terminal.
I rebooted into my fedora install loaded garuda in a VM and the touchpad works perfectly while in the VM which seems odd. Same ISO just one is flashed on a USB the other in a VM
For the 3 steps in the linked thread, use
sudo micro /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
This will create/edit the file, so that you can enter there
blacklist elan_i2c, save, exit, reboot.
Ok will give it a go now and let you know if it works
No change sorry issue is still present
would appear even a noob friendly arch can still be tricky
Sorry, the Arch wiki rarely fails.
And misteriously for this user the blacklist seems to have worked
I have Lenovo Yoga slim 7 with ryzen cpu.
Trackpad did not work, I had to blacklist certain drivers, I forgot which one, I believe it's called elan. (not sure if this affected any gestures I might have had)
When the laptop goes to suspend mode, it won't wake up, there was some patching solution available on Arch wiki but didn't have time to test it properly.
Maybe you could check this arch forum thread. It is not solved, but seems to work with X (you don't have wayland). Not clear to me which one of the two suggestions...
Finally you could try different kernels.
The newer the better probably in these cases.
linux-mainline or even
You can do this with the Garuda assistant.
No other ideas...
It is a brand new laptop and I think the guys are catching up squishing bugs even in linux-next for the majority of the AMD-powered laptops at the moment. Probably just keep the image as a VM rotation and wait for a few updates, then when most current issues are resolved look at switching again but for now, the current distro is rock solid. Love the work though and even in the VM, it is the best-looking distro out currently with the most baked-in functionality I've seen.
