[Bug 1330637] Re: [Acer TravelMate P253] Ubuntu 14.04 touchpad scroller not functional


Hi Christopher,
the 3.16rc1 kernel fixed the issue! Now the touchpad scroller works fine, it just is inverse: going UP with my finger causes the screen to scroll DOWN, like the behaviour you get on touchscreens, so maybe it's intentional indeed...
So thank you a lot!
If someone please explains me how to close a bug, I'll be glad to close it myself!

  [Acer TravelMate P253] Ubuntu 14.04 touchpad scroller not functional

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  on my new Acer TravelMate P253 notebook with Ubuntu 14.04 desktop, the touchpad is working OK for normal operations (moving and tapping), but it never scrolls when I slide vertically on its right side (where two arrows clearly show that it should scroll there). 
  Thank you for any suggestion.
