        I just recently upgraded the F25 on this laptop (Dell Inspiron 1520) to
F26.  It mostly went well, except that I seem to have lost the ability
to use the vertical scrolling part of my touchpad.  I'm running the MATE
desktop, so the first thing I did was to check the mouse configuration
in System->Preferences->Mouse.  In the touchpad tab, I see that Vertical
Edge Scrolling is indeed checked, and un-checking it and re-checking it
does not bring the functionality back.  I can use two-fingered vertical
scrolling (it also is checked), but I am not an expert, and it seems to
have the side effect of backing up if I move my second finger down into
the horizontal scroll area of the touchpad when trying to do a large
vertical scroll.

Fedora switched from using the synaptics touchpad driver to libinput(?)
by default.  Unfortunately, the libinput driver doesn't appear to have
all the features that the synaptics driver does.

At least in Fedora 27, you can uninstall the xorg-x11-drv-libinput
package and install xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-legacy.  I'm not sure how
long this will last.
