journalctl from boot when touchpad wasnt beeing seen

After TW upgrade to 20160524, my touchpad stopped being recognised in the
gnome-control-panel. It only shows mouse (which it recognises the Lenovo track
point as) properties, so no tap-to-click settings etc. All gone, with warnings
like these on the journal:
May 27 02:35:02 tp-yoga260 gnome-control-center.desktop[2370]:
(gnome-control-center:2370): mouse-cc-panel-WARNING **: Detected synaptics X
driver, please migrate to libinput

At this point libinput pkgs were all installed on my system:
S | Name | Summary
| Type
i | libinput-udev | Input device and event processing library integration
into udev | package
i | libinput10 | Input device and event processing library
| package
i | xf86-input-libinput | Libinput driver for the Xorg X server
| package

On a hunch, I uninstalled the xf86-input-synaptics package which also removed
the xorg-x11-driver-input and then rebooted. Gnome-control-center now sees my
touchpad again. Seems this synaptics package should really not be installed by
default then. If I do "zypper inr" it tries to pull in these two pkgs again.
