I get two-finger-scroll working on windows 7

Postby alvin612 » Wed Mar 04, 2009 8:11 pm

Here is what I did:
1. download Lenovo Ideapad u330's touchpad driver for vista from Lenovo official website and install it. This driver can enable multi touch of s10.
2. disable the preloaded pinch function, otherwise the touchpad might get confused about your two finger gestures.
3. download two-finger-scroll, it is a project of google code.
4. run the standalone exe as administrator.
5. Have fun then:)

Serious question, what is the point of 2 finger scroll?

well, I think in such small touchpad, looking for the right board to scroll is kinda painful...however two finger scrolling is relatively easier for me :D

I don't believe this! It works perfectly!

The freaking normal side scrolling when you install the newest synaptics vista driver has the most annoying scrolling acceleration. I had coasting and just about everything else turned off but still the littlest move would move the page to the end/begginng. This little tool has all settings easily modifiable!

Thanks OP this is great.

You put two fingers on the touchpad, then move them up and down to scroll vertically.

I use this driver since january...instead of lenovo or synaptics driver.
install procedure same as upper first post
run as admin
and in compatible mode for vista...
and the same as first post ...uncheck the pinch in the drivermenu
and i like the use of momentum and gliding with pool-like threshold bumping...
--Click--

no hang ups or stuttering ...ever

and in conjuction with the genius 2-finger scroll...

--click--
set to smooth .. and have 2 or 3 Button function... on a touchpad...
more tap tap tap..
and you will never more use of the mousebuttons (click,click,click)
browsing is more comfortable than before...

I install this under all Windows based systems...

thats my 50 cents...

To each his own I guess. I'm not a fan of the momentum features, but I sure do love the two finger scroll, and other multi-touch goodies. Thanks for this thread!
Cheers!
