I tried to get my Acer laptop's touchpad working properly. I installed driver package (psmouse-alps-dkms_0.10_all) which made the side scrolling working. However, the touchpad supports multitouch (works on Windows), but Synaptiks claims that only 1 finger is detected by the touchpad. Thus 2 finger scrolling, pinch & pan zoom and those are not working.

Any ideas how I could get these multi-finger gestures working?

Check the System Settings Mouse and Touch-pad and be sure two finger scrolling is selected.
