No more natural scrolling after upgrading to fedora 24

If your scrolling is inverted after the installation of Fedora 24, you're in the right place !
You'll also notice that the touchpad section of the mouse parameter in gnome parameters has disapeared.

Don't panic, the fix is easy ! Just install the missing package xorg-x11-drv-libinput :

sudo dnf install xorg-x11-drv-libinput

After the installation, reboot your computer.
And that's all. The touchpad section should be back as well as your natural scrolling !

Hello. I typed

sudo dnf install xorg-x11-drv-libinput

It said the package was already installed but I still don't have settings other than "Primary Button", "Mouse Speed" and "Natural Scrolling".

What should I do to get more settings? Is there something I missed? I am running Fedora 24 and Gnome Shell 3.20.4

I'm sorry if that wasn't clear. I meant I don't have any more options under Settings->Mouse & Trackpad.
