Since I loaded zorin, laptop mouse and touchpad is not working. tried the xserver thing but it is of no help, can someone please assist. This is a Toshiba laptop.
Unfortunately, Toshiba notebooks can be notorious for trying to setup GNU/Linux on them. Could you please supply the model details of the notebook?
sudo apt install xserver-xorg-input-all
Can you try:
sudo apt install --reinstall libinput
Please also relay your kernel version (In case you need extra modules) along with @swarfendor437 's request for notebook specs:
