No touchpad.

Kinda weird, but debian based distros do not see touchpad.
egrep -i 'synap|alps|etps|elan' /proc/bus/input/devices outputs nothing
-libinput, -evdev and -mouse (xserver-xorg-input) are present.
dmesg|grep -i touch reports only Goodix Capacitive TouchScreen
More weird is that Debian fails to see neither touchpad nor touchsreen. MX somehow sees touchscreen.
Ubuntu and Manjaro has everything (but accelerometer) working outta box.
The machine is Teclast F5.
