there are no error messages in the log regarding libinput, it all comes up
normally. So whatever the issue is, I don't think that's it. the logind
messages looked fine too, so that shouldn't be an issue either.

fwiw, you could easily verify it with sudo libinput-debug-events, if that
handles the events correctly then the driver will too and you can mostly
rule out libinput issues.

"it is failing" is a bit generic, what exactly doesn't work?
