Hello.

Well, it is not the issue of a ParrotOS but the Linux Kernel. But so far as I see they’ve added an out-of-box support for linux 5.3-rc3 which unfortunately is still not debianized, but as soon as it will everything will work.

As for now you really need an external mouse or keyboard in order to install a system, and you need to apply a patch for libinput https://gist.github.com/peterychuang/5cf9bf527bc26adef47d714c758a5509.

I wrote up as script which is patching and reinstalling libinput - try it and tell me if the issue is resolved
