Windows 7: Any open source 2 finger scroll gesture support?

Any open source 2 finger scroll gesture support?

Just bought a laptop that uses a Sentelic touch-pad, even with the latest drivers and customization set the two finger scroll still sucks.

Is there any other options I have for 2 finger scroll?

You can try this first, and see if it works anyhow.

This option, and the amount of functionality provided, depends on whether your hardware (the pad itself) supports it and, if it does, whether the driver enables and provides software support.

Try Drivers | Synaptics to see if they help. Note that these are generic drivers which might or might not work with your particular hardware setup - always create a restore point prior to installing, and install at your own risk.

Any other options are welcome. I really just want my 2 finger scroll.

Microsoft offers no default gesture support?
