I agree, considering that my v6.5 isnt working either. Well, the chiralmotion is, but only when you touch the designated scroll area. So none of the multi-touch things work for me.

Excellent program, but please adding swiping options. I could not get the modded acer driver two/three finger gestures to work w/ the two finger scroll program. It seems the two finger scroll program overpowers the swiping motions so it will not complete the move.

I believe someone was able to do this. How do I get the swiping motions in the modded acer driver to work w/ the two finger scroll program? I'm using a Latitude X1 w/ a 6.3 synaptics pad.

FYI, the two finger program did not work on my HP 2133 w/ 6.5 synaptics pad.

Thanks a lot!
It works on my t60 with 11.2.4 Synaptics driver.

Is it possible to get 2-finger-scrolling to work on a T400?

I currently have installed Lenovo UltraNav driver v9.1.3.6 on Windows Vista.
TwoFingerScroll.exe pops up a windows saying that "support for multiple fingers is already enabled but the driver still doesn't report multiple fingers"

Any solution to this?

When I run it, it just says this:

Synaptics kernel driver registry keys missing. Reinstall drivers.

I just installed these drivers.

Xenomorph, did you reboot after the driver installation? I'm using the same version on the exact same Vista version and the tool works.

I've rebooted several times since they were installed.

I *just* put Vista on this a few days ago, and the Synaptics drivers a little after that. The system had been rebooted a few times before I even read about the the 2-finger app.

Should I just to re-install the drivers and reboot? I was thinking maybe I missed some step or over-looked something in the thread to get it to work.

Weird.

The error message you got is displayed when the following registry key cannot be found:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\SynTP\Parameters

Could you please start regedit (press Start, type regedit, press Enter) and check if it's there? The SynTP key should definitely be there if the driver is installed. Maybe there's no Parameters key inside it for some reason. If you have SynTP, tell me what's inside it.

Also, try starting the tool with admin rights (right click on the exe, Run As Administrator).

Admin rights seemed to be the issue. I ran as Admin and it told me support was now added, and to reboot.
Thanks!

Ok, this seems pretty neat.

Way more accurate than the virtual scrolling junk.

Two questions:
- Why can't the virtual scrolling more emulate a real mouse wheel? The acceleration is always so..."off".

- When I have one finger down, and place another down to scroll, when I remove the second finger, the mouse cursor shoots WAY off to the side - like it was centered on the second finger and was quickly moving to the left where my first finger was.
Anyway to make the cursor "hold still" when a second finger is removed????

Two Finger Scrolling Program on xps m1330 with V6.3

#131 Post by getsource » Thu Feb 19, 2009 10:35 pm

Hi,
The two-finger scrolling program looks awesome, but I'm having trouble getting it to work. I'd appreciate help if possible. =)

I'm getting the following error:
"Driver support for multiple fingers is already enabled but the driver doesn't report multiple fingers. Either you haven't restarted the system yet or your TouchPad doesn't support multiple fingers.

I'm using the following configuration:
Dell XPS m1330; Vista x32
Synaptics Touchpad V6.3
"Modded" Synaptics Driver 10.2.4

It looks like this configuration should work, given the comments in this thread.
Any suggestions? If you want more infos, let me know.

Thanks,
GS

I just installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my T43.

I was surprised when absolutely all functions of the UltraNav stuff worked.

Middle-click with the TrackPoint worked out-of-the-box.

And Two-Finger-Scrolling worked as well without having to do anything!

I'm so use to using TwoFingerScrolling under Windows, I did it under Ubuntu without thinking, and the window started scrolling. I realized that is the system default with Ubuntu.

Started a new, more genereal thread on the topic at this thread following the fact that a driver from HP unlocks multitouch on many machines (other than HP)
