Re: dragging with 2 fingers for mac book pro touchpad



How can i do "dragging with two fingers" in Fedora 12 with the touchpad

be sure that you have this package...

xorg-x11-drv-synaptics

check to see if you have two finger scrolling enabled with the utility gnome-mouse-properties...

also options no longer go in the xorg.conf and instead should be migrated to a hal fdi configuration; placed in /etc/hal/fdi/policy/

http://queuemail.com/10-synaptics.fdi

documentation for the configuration can be found in the manual pages
http://linux.die.net/man/5/synaptics

some other good general documentation can be found here...
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Touchpad_Synaptics

this works on a mbp4,1...

hope that helps...

I tried to follow this one:

but it did not work.

Any more pointers would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
