Hey there. You should provide more information regarding your installation/system, as just stating "Touchpad not working on GNOME" isn't enough. This could be due to the fact that your touchpad's firmware was not installed for multiple reasons.

Regardless, the Team nor anyone can help you without knowing the make, model, etc. of your device.

One method that Steev previously suggested is the following:

Create a file called "/etc/dconf/db/gdm.d/06-tap-to-click" and write the following:


Then run "sudo dconf update"/ Afterwards, either restart gdm, or reboot. This should probably resolve your issue.
