Bug Description

This System Setting is not remembered. Re-opening System Settings after ticking the option shows it unticked again.

Two finger scrolling seems to partially work in spite of this, but is very "hair-trigger". The slightest horizontal movement while scrolling triggers 'back/next' actions. Especially noticeable when web browsing.

[v0.3 Freya, running under VirtualBox on Apple Macbook Air 11"]

Cannot reproduce here, but I'm not on Apple hardware.

Ah, it seems likely that it's due to VirtualBox being used; it might be trying to be smart and sending back/forward keypresses, and elementary OS likely isn't seeing the trackpad hardware directly as it would if it was installed on disk.

I'm going to mark this as "fix committed" since we just got a new plug and I can't reproduce here. If someone other than OP can reproduce, please set the status to "confirmed"
