Description Ye Myat Kaung 2012-05-25 13:05:12 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently I'm using a DELL Inspiron 15R N5110 with Alps GlidePoint Touchpad. The touch pad only does clicking (left & right) and move around. No multi-touch/scrolling.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.3.7-1.fc17.x86_64 (updates-testing repo)

How reproducible:
Try scrolling vertically/horizontally without making use of the scrollbars.

Actual results:
clicking (left & right) and move around only

Expected results:
multi-touch/scrolling vertically/horizontally

Additional info:
should have scrolling vertically/horizontally

Is this still happening in the 3.4.x kernel updates?
Comment 2 Ye Myat Kaung 2012-07-06 00:00:27 EDT
I've updates-testing repo enabled and currently, my F17 is at kernel version: 3.4.4-3.fc17.x86_64 but in the "Mouse and Touchpad" settings, I still don't have the options to configure multitouch stuff. So, yes, it's still happening in the 3.4.x kernel updates.
Comment 3 Josh Boyer 2012-07-06 09:19:38 EDT
Is only the multitouch functionality missing?  So normal "mouse" operation works, including side and horizontal scrolling?
