Kawabunga! This driver works on my old Compaq R4000 laptop (circa 2005)! I dug-up the original article HERE.
SPAM-posters beware! ®
Hey my Acer has a Synaptics touchpad. Where do I find these drivers?
The drivers are in the original article that ArcticCheetah posted. Click on the link in my post!
Wow, so the technology was there, just not the programming.
So going to update and try this out when I get home! Thanks for leting us know
And I wonder how Apple feels about this... since they own the patent on multi-touch operations and "totally have not been suing people over patents" lately.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Thanks to Jennifer for the article and in particular to Super Dave for the link ! While I'm a mouse man myself (anyone familiar with the Scandinavian languages will understand why) and rarely boot to a Windows OS in the first place, this is cool ! Works like a charm on my HP Pavilion dv9000 with an AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile TL-64 2200 MHz CPU when booted to 32-bit Vista Business ; have to try it on an old XP laptop that I have lying around....
It always amazes me when we discover new ways to upgrade old tech. Much like the ability to network outdated computers together to use as a render farm in 3D software.
Now if society could put all those hackers to good use by generating mod scripts such as this to transform old hardware to perform like their new counterparts?
My tablet has a Synaptics touchpad, it will be interesting to see how this update works on it.
That «old XP laptop» is a Dell Inspiron 1300 with a Synaptics touchpad ; the driver update to 184.108.40.206 provided the latter with multi-touch functions, just as it did on the HP....
So cool it works on my 4+ year old Compaq nc4000.
Works on my aspire one. Pinch and zoom FTW!
Worked for me too on my HP lappy. Thanks for the heads up!
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Been messing with this since I posted last. It is really nice. The 3 finger scroll thing is AWESOME. I really am ecstatic about this. I even sent this link to my TF2 clans site, because I know a lot of them game on laptops. THIS IS AWESOME! So pumped about this.
