My 15z arrived last night and the Cypress touchpad is miserable (at least with the current driver) compared to my MBP. Here is what I am trying to get it to do, but can't seem to:
* Like bmzero, I am not getting consistent scrolling using two fingers. For example, in FF scrolling always ends up zooming out making fonts smaller. Scrolling works for a bit, but eventually the zooming starts.
* Cannot continue dragging with second finger. Example, double tap an icon and start dragging it, finger reaches end of touchpad , use second finger to continue dragging. This is the way the MBP touchpad works.
* Zooming out doesn't seem to work at all. The touchpad doesn't seem to recognize two-finger magnification zooming.
Are there any alternate / open source touchpad driver projects?
Dell has posted a updated touchpad driver here: Drivers & Downloads. If you installed a previous update there is a chance that the "new" driver installed over the old vs a cleaner uninstall/install which would have contributed to poor performance. This latest driver addresses the erratic cursor and touchpad diable issues.
Could someone help me uninstall cypress and use the windows? I uninstalled it, I thought, but didn't see the windows trackpack driver (only for the external mouse). Is there a windows trackpad driver that comes installed? If not, where do I get it from? Lastly, does it have the option for scrolling?
Have had same issues with my trackpad, dell installed new download of the previous driver, saying it is a temp fix and a new driver is coming out next month that will fix all the issues. Since the install of the earlier driver, it works great. no issues.
