Touchpad Scroll works?
« on: November 26, 2010, 02:13:27 PM »
Hi all!

Tinycore is amazing me more and more day after day. It take a while to configure but i really like to play with that!

But, I can't find how to make my touchpad scroll work. I'm now running openbox and tried to change it on the Xvesa command line and with the mouse tool but the scroll still don't work...

Anyone can help me please?

The version I have installed is 3.3 right now.

Thanks!

Dealt with before. Do a search. :) Bootcode is needed.

Well, if it is really important to you, you might want to consider Xorg with synaptics driver.

Mike Lockmoore reported it worked with a EeePC, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to work on mine (EeePC 701) with XVesa :(

Well... it's not SO important but it helps in various applications that I use on my day. But I really DO NOT want to go to a full Xorg only because of that...

I always searched for the simpler and faster system - TC does that.

I only do some questions to know where I can go with TC and my machine.

u can always try gpm & imwheel, although this would require some compiling (extensions: compiletc, ncurses, Xorg-7.5-dev). Trying to get my marble mouse working with xvesa myself, I did get the extra buttons working tho :)

google: gpm imwheel touchpad

Please see http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=6458.msg34363#msg34363.  This works well with an eeePC 1000 and TC 3.x.
