What's your laptop? Mine's a Dell Inspiron 600m. I've tried synaptics cuz I thoguht mine had one of those, but turns out it didn't. I've been wanting a side scroll for quite a while now since I switched it over to Linux.

Yeh, I have a dell too, an Inspiron 8600...

But this has to be a common problem, or at least common to all that people who wants to put linux on a notebook with a non-synaptic touchpad..
At a second analisis.. That category of people has to be very very restricted.. How much do you think we are? 2?

(but also )
