Touchpad Scrolling

This question is not answered

Hi..

I Just bought a M1330 Laptop and the first thing i noticed with it was that the touchpad scrolling does not behave like a genetic scrolling event from a normal mouse...

Manny of the programs i use dosn't detect that the mouse is scroling at all. So i have to manualy drag the scrollbars.

On my previous laptop i didnt even have to install drivers for the scrolling to work.

Now i have tryed dell's own drivers and the latest Synaptics Driver and none of them works properly.

So the question is. How can i get the touchpad scrolling to work like a normal mouse scroll? Is there some other drivers that i can use?

  • There is no "Gestures" Tab in Control Panel -> Mouse

    i have tryed using dell drivers and synaptics driver

    Note: Scrolling works in some appplications but not all :-(

    On the synaptics driver i can select to scroll the item under the cursor or the selected item.. but it still doesent work in some application.

     

  • O.k.,right click the touchpad icon in system tray,select pointing device properties,gestures tab and go from there.

  • Im getting the same place as going to control panel -> Mouse.  And there is no gestures tab.. now im using the Synaptics driver and software version 10.1.8 drownloaded from http://www.synaptics.com/support/drivers (Vista 32Bit)

  • I've got the same problem.  Scrolling does not work.  I've downloaded the latest Synaptics drivers for XP.  I don't have a "gestures" tab.  I've seen other posts about this but I don't see any resolutions.  I'm using a Latitude D420.

  • I'm having the same problems with the scrolling not working. However, when I go to my mouse settings, I can't click on "enable scrolling". I click on it and it doesn't check mark that it has been clicked. Any ideas?

  • Inspiron 1380, scrolling using touchpad is not working for me either.

    When I click on 'Mouse' from 'Control Panel' I get: "unable to connect to the synaptics pointing device driver"

     

     

  • Thank you. Works perfectly again.
