Dell 5431 Touchpad disabled or freeze Ubuntu 20.04 / Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Good morning, I have a Dell Latitude 5431 and I have encountered a problem with the touchpad, which is replicated in Ubuntu 20.04 and 22.04 LTS versions, both in Wayland and X11. The touchpad gestures stop working and the cursor freezes in a corner of the screen.

In X11, I have been able to reconnect the touchpad gestures using "xinput disable " and "xinput enable " or by logging out of the system. The system has dell-om and focal-dell repositories, and the BIOS is updated to the January 2023 version.

Thank you very much for everything, and if you need any additional information, please let me know so that I can add it to the post.
