X-Mouse with a track pad/ Synaptics pad

Post by FilipemeiraCastro »

Hi,

Congratulations for this excellent application.
It works really well on my USB mouse, the only problem is on the laptop track pad, I use two finger to scroll up/down and that is not detected by X-Mouse...

Any suggestions for this?

Have a great day,

Synaptics do things differently. Their app does not send the usual mouse wheel messages to scroll, so XMBC wont see them. XMBC remaps mouse messages only.

Not much I can do about it I'm afraid.

Having said that, my laptop's touchpad (Elan) two finger scroll is seen by XMBC (the boxes highlight orange in the setup window)....
EDIT: It only works for vertical scroll though, not horizontal scroll!

I'm thought my old laptop's synaptics pad worked too (but I cant check as I don't have it any more [your 3 days too late!]).
Maybe I had different version of the driver/software or configuration?
Can anyone else confirm this either way?

Thanks,
Phil

I dont exactly understand what doesnt work with the 2finger scrolling.

I have both, synaptics drivere and XMBC, and the 2finger scroll works perfectly fine. It also -evne- works -sometimes- when the window is not in focus!

I think that FilipemeiraCastro is trying to remap the "two finger" scroll to something else, using XMBC and that is not working. I no longer have a synaptics pad so I cant try that (but it works on my Elan pad)

I dont suppose you could try that? Do the scroll wheel fields in XMBC highlight when you do a 2 finger scroll?

Thanks/
Phil
