    Is it just me, or is the Cypress trackpad hard to use?

    I can't get consistent scrolling using two fingers or the scroll areas. I have even tried disabling all 2-finger and multi-finger gestures.

    I have also uninstalled and reinstalled the driver with no luck.

    Anyone else having these issues?


    thanks,
    -brit

    Uninstall cypress driver, use windows default one

    No multi gesture, but it's very smooth to use

    Is there any way to scroll (ex. 2 finger scroll or scroll areas) with the base driver installed or do you have to use the drag handles on scrollable windows?

    Really? My 15z works perfectly with the Cypress drivers :/
    2 finger is silky smooth, and 4finger works great too!

    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.

    Hi folks,

    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?

    Thank you SO much!

    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.
