HP dv7t quad. Same identifier as the solution listed above. I did not quote to save space. Followed step by step and it doesn't work. I'm using gnome and 10.10.
Tested and this works perfectly on my Asus eeePC 1001p. I was wondering though if you could change it so the 2 finger tap emulated a middle click instead of a right click.
Running Ubuntu Netbook 10.10 on an Asus 1101HA, or, the netbook that should run linux fantastically but is actually the linux-netbook from hell.
Yep--ptosiani's solution stops working after I suspend/reboot my computer (eeePC 1001P). In this earlier thread, lores suggests making a script that runs on startup, (and making a shortcut icon, as that won't work after suspend).
Here's more detailed instructions (for 10.04 but I assume it'll work for 10.10 too).
You are exceptionally awesome. I can confirm this works in Ubuntu 10.10 (Asus 1201 netbook with synaptics touchpad). Thanks again for the perfect instructions. If done correctly this should only take a minute or two to do; you don't even need to restart.

The pointing device did the trick for my aging black MacBook.
Still trying to get this to work after restarting... Any tips?
