two finger scrolling

I discovered this feature by accident and hey this is cool! That was on ubuntu 14.04 but for some reason it won't work on 16.04. There are a lot of post on the web on how to enable two finger scrolling but I haven't found one that works. Is there one out there that does work?

Most likely from what I've seen your system switched from synaptics to libinput.

What kernel modules do you have loaded?
