Synaptics Touchpad Not working

In my installation of Rocky Linux my mouse works but my synaptics touchpad does not despite making changes in the settings–>devices–>Mouse & Touchpad.

$cat /proc/bus/input/devices | grep -i touchpad
gives me:
N: Name=“SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad”

$xinput list
gives me:
Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ xwayland-pointer:16 id=6 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ xwayland-relative-pointer:16 id=7 [slave pointer (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ xwayland-keyboard:16

I have tried adding a file “50-synaptics.conf” in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d with the following data:
Section “InputClass”
Identifier “touchpad catchall”
Driver “SynPS/2 Synaptics Touchpad”
MatchIsTouchpad “on”
MatchDevicePath “/dev/input/event*”

Section “InputClass”
Identifier “touchpad ignore duplicates”
MatchIsTouchpad “on”
MatchOS “Linux”
MatchDevicePath “/dev/input/mouse*”
Option “Ignore” “on”

I am running Rocky Linux 8.5 downloaded and installed today. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
