    Problems with two finger scrolling

    Hi,

    Running Ubuntu desktop 9.10 on my ASUS 1005HA netbook. it seems almost everything works except for two finger scrolling with the touchpad.

    I found the thread here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1401645

    But when I ran "synclient VertTwoFingerScroll=1" It set it to "1" but I still cannot use two finger scrolling, since the mouse jumps all over the place.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Re: Problems with two finger scrolling

    Same problem here. I have found this thread suggesting a two-finger emulation but it is no good either.

    Running
    Code:
    synclient -m 50
    shows me that the ALPS touchpad does not recognize more than 1 finger, nor does it detect width (so emulation is probably out of the question). Does this mean I have no hope?

    I am running a Dell Latitude D630.

    Sample reading from the output:

    Code:

    Did you ever find a solution to this? I also have a Latitude D630 and would love to be able to get two-finger scroll working on it.

    I'm also having problems with two finger scrolling on Dell Latiude D630. I'm running Ubuntu 12.04.

    Any ideas?
