Well, as the title explains that's my problem, I'm using 3.18 kernel, and this are my thoughts:
First of all the touchpad wasn't showing up in xinput while I was expecting something like:
⎜ ↳ PS/2 Synaptics TouchPad id=14 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ DLL068B:00 06CB:76E9 UNKNOWN id=12 [slave pointer (2)]
the result was:
⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ SI id=11 [slave pointer (2)] ⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)] ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Video Bus id=7 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Video Bus id=8 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Power Button id=9 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ SI id=10 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Integrated_Webcam_FHD id=12 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=13 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Dell WMI hotkeys id=14 [slave keyboard (3)]
I have a USB-mouse connected to the computer so it must be the SI.
I was amazed because I have read this question asking for changing the behaviour of the touchpad while mine isn't even detected so I went to the dmesg, that shows:
[ 11.910114] hid-rmi 0018:06CB:76E9.0004: Scanning PDT...

And the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file shows something like:
[ 26.245] (II) config/udev: Adding input device DLL068B:00 06CB:76E9 (/dev/input/event7) [ 26.245] (II) No input driver specified, ignoring this device.
So the thing it's it can be a problem with either hid-rmi or a problem with the X configuration (probably the hid-rmi but not for sure) or both which is fun. If anybody have any idea about the problem, it'll be welcomed.
Best regards, me.
