I have used that feature in windows and I have always wanted to try that feature on this ubuntu raring.Using gsynaptics doesn't work it shows grey or deactivated buttons on circular scrolling. Is there anyway of accomplishing this?


Or simply

  1. gedit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf
  2. In the section where you find

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "touchpad catchall"
Driver "synaptics"

In the end of that section add

Option "CircularScrolling" "on"
Option "CircScrollTrigger" "3"
Option "VertTwoFingerScroll" "on"  //two finger scrolling ....
Option "HorizTwoFingerScroll" "on"  // similar 
Option "PalmDetect" "on"

Save the file properly and restart .
Remember you need superuser privilages to make changes to file.

Hope it helps :)
