Gnome settings contains an option for enabling two-finger scrolling. This is a nice feature but I require side scrolling as well. Ideally, I would like to have enabled both options. Is that possible? Thank you very much.

Try

synclient HorizTwoFingerScroll=1

for horizontal two-finger scrolling rather than edge scrolling.

If your driver is using the synclient for mapping your touchpad you can make a startup script that adds that ability the command would be:

synclient HorizEdgeScroll=1  

I would test in first and make sure it works as you expect, and if it is satisfactory create a sh script to run.
