Ubuntu – How to get two-finger scolling to work


Always wanted this feature but it never works in ubuntu. Is there any hack/mod to get it to work? My laptop is an Acer 5532, and my touchpad is from Synaptics. The latest drivers from Synaptics made two-finger scolling possible with Windos 7, so I'm guessing there's some way to work in Ubuntu/Linux.

Best Answer

So I guess you enabled the two finger scrolling as described in my first answer. As you cannot post the results of synclient -l try the following:

Open start up applications and add a new application and write the following command into the command line

xterm -e synclient "EmulateTwoFingerMinZ=10"

this will change the most probably too high value in synclient.
