The Two Finger Scroll tool was developed to be a small application that will allow you to add some useful two finger gestures to Synaptics TouchPads. These TouchPads can be found in many todays laptops and many of them support multiple finger gestures.
Currently there are only two supported gestures:
- Two finger scrolling - scroll vertically by sliding two fingers anywhere on the TouchPad
- Two finger tapping - tap with two fingers to simulate a selected mouse button
The scroll closely simulates a mouse scroll wheel. This mode works with most applications.
Smooth scrolling. Some older applications may not work propery in this scroll mode.
Uses smooth scrolling by default. Compatible mode can be enabled for specific applications by scrolling within them while keeping SHIFT, CTRL and ALT keys pressed down. The setting is remembered, all future scrolls in the same application will use the compatible mode. Scrolling with the keys again reverts back to the smooth mode.
