Vertical and horizontal touchpad scrolling don't work on the Eee PC in Jaunty beta

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-control-center

When I go to System > Preferences > Mouse > Touchpad and select to enable vertical and horizontal scrolling, neither works.

The other touchpad options do work, however (enable touchpad and enable mouse clicks with touchpad).

I'm using the Eee PC 701.

Thanks. That was a really fast response!

I have this problem as well on my TX1020ea. Standard vertical scrolling doesn't work even though It's enabled under System-Settings-Mouse-Touchpad.

Instead I have some kind of half working multi-touch scrolling. I keep my left pointing finger on the left part of the touchpad then I scroll vertically with the right pointing finger on the center of the touchpad area. The page moves down but it stutters and seems to jump up sometimes.

This old tablet seems to be using a capacitive touchpad but is not marketed as multi-touch ready.

With today's updates (I think there was a kernel upgrade in there, too), both vertical and horizontal scrolling appear to be working again on my Eee PC.

I hope there aren't any regressions before the final release of Jaunty.

closing the bug it seems that was rather a driver issue than a GNOME one and works now
