Driver for scrolling thru trackpad on Linux Laptops

Hi guys
Is there anything like this which allows one to scroll thru the windows using the track pad on a laptop. I am not sure about PCs but on Macs once can get Sidetrack and uControl kind of things which allows one to scroll thru the windows horizontally and vertically using the trackpad. makes life easier than an external 3 button mouse.
Is anybody anything like this on a Linux laptop

This depends on the touchpad. For example, the Synaptics touchpad used on lots of recent laptops lets you do exactly that (and a lot more). You just need the synaptics driver for X.
