I am new to ubuntu(11.04) and I have an Acer Aspire 4741g

When i worked on win-7, my touch pad had vertical scrolling and multi-gesture, both scrolling and multi-gesture aren't working on ubuntu.

How can i get it to work?

Multi-gesture is very much work-in-progress. Try installing 11.10 (oneiric) onto a USB stick and booting your laptop with that. Does multi-gesture then work for you? –  fossfreedom Sep 10 '11 at 12:38
looks like this version is not ready yet... –  Khalid Essam Sep 10 '11 at 17:05
correct - it is beta - but will be ready in a month's time. As I said, it is worth testing to see if multi-gestures is supported for your computer in this new version of ubuntu –  fossfreedom Sep 10 '11 at 17:11
