Cursor doesn't move when installing Qubes on Librem 14

I’m trying to instal Qubes on a new Librem 14 and the cursor won’t move allowing me to select my language.

Hi @OhRight

I don’t have any particular insights on the Librem 14, but let me ask a few questions to help others help you:

  • Which version of Qubes OS are you installing?
  • Are you using the touchpad?
  • Have you tried using another mouse? (It’s ok if you haven’t!)
  • Can you select a language using the keyboard? (example: pressing the TAB key to move the selection)

I suppose you’ve seen this hardware compatibility list (HCL) entry:

The person who submitted it doesn’t mention any issues with the touchpad, so at least it’s not a known issue. …and that’s as far as I can help with the Librem 14! Hopefully someone else can help you further :slightly_smiling_face:

I’m trying to install the latest version of Qubes using a touchpad.

Used a mouse and the installation went smoothly. Qubes is running flawlessly on my Librem 14.

Good to hear! Thank you for reporting back @OhRight!

Does the touchpad work now that the installation is complete?

Yes the touchpad is fine. Thanks for your help.
