Trackpoint settings missing after upgrade to plasma6

I recently updated to plasma 6 on manjaro.

the system settings are now missing the settings panel for my thinkpad trackpoint.

how can I get it back ?

Trackpoints generally show up as mice. Have you looked in the Mouse page? You might have to click on the device combobox to select it there, if it isn’t pre-selected by default.

I had checked the mouse and there were no trackpoint there.

I checked again after reading your message and mine is missing the device entry from your screenshot. at the moment I have both a working trackpoint and a mouse plugged into the computer.

I also noticed that the touchpad says “no touchpad found” despite also having a fully functional touchpad.

this points to some other issues than a settings panel missing.

I do not know where to start to diagnose what could cause the problem here, is there documentation I can refer to ?

This can happen if you’ve blacklisted or uninstalled the Libinput drivers. In Plasma 6, they’re the only ones that we support with a GUI control panel.

libinput is installed along with xf86-input-libinput.
no blacklist.

the only change between this setting working and not working is the manjaro system upgrade to plasma 6
