After some tips from Adam I set up two finger scrolling on the touchpad on my old laptop. Add the options to your xorg.conf file and you’re good to go! Screenshot of the Touchpad section from my Xorg.conf If you want more options. See the Gento Wiki about Synaptics Touchpad.
For the longest time I have been using aoeu.info for all my Dvorak information. But some days ago when I needed a Swedish Dvorak keyboard layout for Mac OS X I found the site down. I searched around for a while but couldn’t find any Swedish Dvorak layouts for OS X so I decided to […]
