Hi, after a day my scrolling function not going smoothly any more. I need to touch the pad for 3, 4, 5 sec to be able to scroll with 1 finger, what parameter I need to change to make it more active (faster recognize scroll function) when i touch the pad and move my finger up, down (vertical scroll), left, or right (horizontal scroll)?Is it correct loading for FFscroll data driver?
that verbose mode looks like it is for your graphics display driver.anyways to change the sensitivity on acceptance of scroll is to change the value of zAcceptThreshold
in both horizontal and vertical either under ALPS or Synaptics. Make the value lower to be more sensitive. also try moving the sensitivity slider up or down in the FFScroll app for both vertical and horizontal, read the tutorial again, as I have updated it with how to change settings

70 is the good number on a Vostro 1500
I have a little annoyance: since the driver update it's much difficult to tap to click, i have to concentrate and keep my hand incredibly still to make a tap - is there a parameter to adjust it to make it easier, more sensitive?
yea, it is difficult to tap now, but it is a trade off for scrolling function. You can try editing the tap threshold, Property: tapTolerence
, I havent tried tweaking with that yet. Its a good thing there are two buttons on your laptops for the trackpad :)How I tap is exactly how I move the mouse on the trackpad, use the very tip of my finger to tap\move mouse, while the bottom of my finger is to scroll. Tap lightly and tap fast.

Well I installed the package and followed all the steps, everything seems in place, trackpad became much more sensetive, but I dont think scrolling is working atleast when I try to do it its not. am I not doing it right ? I`m on Dell e1505Well it kinda works, but the way it scrolls is kinda unusable. WHen I press the finger on it, it just kinda starts going crazy..... DO I have to change the value in both places ?Had to uninstall the mouse is a unusable too sensitive...... and starts scrolling while just using the mouse normally
did you change the tracking speed in the mouse\keyboard settings? try turning it down more than halfway. If scrolling is going crazy, you have to edit the zThreshold mentioned above. Try making it higher.
