    Default Multi touch gestures for all Asus laptops with Synaptics touchpad

    Don't know it this was already known here but I just installed a new driver on my 3 year old Asus A6000 and now I have a multi touch touchpad

    I used the driver here: Latest Synaptics driver modded for Acer MediaTouch

    Interesting, I may try it out later.
    Looks like its just media touch not really multi touch, like what the EEE has where you can do different things with different finger gestures tho, am I right?

    Id be looking to do things like 2 finger scrolling, zoom in/out, page forward/back. Thats what I would call multi touch.

    Right, this is real multi touch. Two finger going back and forward on web pages is the only one I've tested sofar. Works great.

    There's also options for "chiral" something but I don't know how to test it. And three finger gestures too.

    Then I will definitely check it out, I like multitouch so much on my EEE its the first time ever I did not consider a mouse mandatory. I infact have never even used a mouse with my EEE, even tho I did just buy a VX Nano in case I did want one lol.

    Same here, I was using a Macbook Air for a while and liked the multi touch so much I prefered it over using a mouse.

    I'm very happy I can now use it on my Asus.

    I just installed the driver on my U6V and it works! You can even assign tap zones, like the ones on the Asus M50 notebook (but limited to 4 zones, one in each corner). The only downside is that the chiromotion doesn't work with Firefox 3

    After trying this for a couple of weeks I'm really impressed with my old touchpad. For example it's possible to assign eight different two finger gestures. I've got left and right set to move back and forward, up an down to scrolling up and down, while I use the diagonal gestures for opening new tabs with speicific websites I want to visit,
