I like to use my touchscreen to scroll.

Device Enabled (121):   1
Coordinate Transformation Matrix (123): 0.365000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 0.635000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 1.000000, 0.640000

Evdev Axis Inversion (246): 0, 0
Evdev Axis Calibration (247):   <no items>
Evdev Axes Swap (248):  0
Axis Labels (249):  "Abs X" (259), "Abs Y" (260)
Button Labels (250):    "Button Unknown" (241), "Button Unknown" (241), "Button Unknown" (241), "Button Wheel Up" (127), "Button Wheel Down" (128)
Evdev Middle Button Emulation (251):    0
Evdev Middle Button Timeout (252):  50
Evdev Wheel Emulation (253):    1
Evdev Wheel Emulation Axes (254):   0, 0, 4, 5

Evdev Wheel Emulation Timeout (256):    200
Evdev Wheel Emulation Button (257): 4

The manual from www.x.org says it's the 4th button by default ... but I neither know how to gesture to scroll, nor the buttons 0,1 seem to work.

Maybe touchpad-ish two fingers? –  int_ua Nov 23 '11 at 13:58
    
i never used touchpad before, must they be close together? –  Peter Rader Nov 24 '11 at 9:59

No, separate. Demonstration: youtube.com/watch?v=E2ZpbIqKl78 But that's for touchpad, I'm not sure if that's true for touchscreens. –  int_ua Nov 25 '11 at 4:28
    
According to ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1604149 scroll works on some hardware. What is yours? –  int_ua Nov 25 '11 at 4:59
    
This question should instead be filed as a bug report, and as such is off-topic, thanks! Instructions here. –  bodhi.zazen Feb 27 '12 at 5:12

There is a duplicate question: How to really use multitouch gestures now And the short answer is

At the moment (Ubuntu 11.10), this is a missing feature.

But do take a look for additional information.
