    Samsung N150 Touchpad Scrolling

    I have just got a Samsung N150, and installed Natty. Everything worked OOB, except the touchpad scrolling. I looked in the touchpad control panel and the 'Enable vertical Scrolling' was checked. At this point I checked 'Enable horizontal scrolling', which resulted in horizontal scrolling working, but still no vertical scrolling.

    I then searched on the forums and found this link:

    http://superuser.com/questions/13656...-kubuntu-10-04

    Where Patches and Richard Flynn (I'm not sure which) posted this solution:

    Just found this, which works in Ubuntu. Open a terminal, and type in the following lines:

    Code:
    sudo modprobe -r psmouse
    Code:
    sudo modprobe psmouse proto=imps
    This enables scrolling for your current session - test and make sure it works. If so, you can make it permanent by:

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/options
    and adding the line:

    Code:
    options psmouse proto=imps
    Then close and reboot.

    I followed these instructions and now have vertical scrolling. But not horizontal scrolling.
    The touchpad control is now a mouse control with no touchpad tab and no 'Enable horizontal scrolling'.
    Does anyone know how to get both horizontal AND vertical scrolling at the same time?

    Even I have the similar problem. I can't do two finger scrolling. Only option to scroll for me from touchpad is dragging scroll bar. MIne is Samsung NC108-A4IN

    I have the same problem with my N150 plus, it appears if you are using Chrome there is an issue with scrolling, vertical scrolling in firefox works well.

    Cheers

    Wow! I finally got scrolling working with this solution. And by scrolling I mean 'normal' scrolling, not this jumpy stuff I had before. Thank you!
