Acer Aspire V5 573G :: Synaptic Multi-touch Gestures Not Configurable / Working

Nov 29, 2014

i'm having problems with my new acer v5 touchpad... i made a clean install of windows 8.1 and installed all the win 8.1 drivers from the acer support site. from the device id of my touchpad (ACPISYN1B71) i assumed that it is a synaptics model.
 
the problem now: after installing several versions of the driver, even trying the alps and elantech versions, i could never manage to get multi-gesture settings in the settings windows from synaptics - there are only settings visible for right- and left-click. where are the multi-touch gesture options for windows 8?
 
basic funtions work, like left click, two-finger right click and two-finger scrolling, but nothing is configurable and all the other gestures are not available.

Apple :: Use Multi-Touch Gestures In Nearly Any App

Mar 11, 2009

Use MultiClutch to assign multi-touch gestures in almost any application in OS X!

Quote:

Basically, Multiclutch allows you to assign custom keyboard shortcuts in a given app to a given gesture. Want swipes to change tabs in Safari? Done. The same in iChat? Done. Want zoom-in to open emails in Mail, zoom-out to close windows in every app, and a swipe down to bring up Quicksilver? Done done done.

MultiClutch works by installing a simple input manager that catches gesture events, looks to see what shortcut youve defined for it in the frontmost app (if you havent defined anything, it behaves in the standard manner), and performs that shortcut. You use a System Preference Pane to customize gestures with an interface similar to the shortcut-customization table in the Keyboard & Mouse pane. You can bind gestures in a given Cocoa app (due to the nature of input managers, Carbon apps are not supported) or globally.

Acer Aspire V5-552g :: Windows 8 - After Installing Updates Touch Gestures Not Working

Sep 23, 2014

I just bought my Acer Aspire V5-552g a week ago. Everything seems to be working fine. However, Windows advised me to install updates which I did. After installing the updates the touch gestures are not working anymore. I tried updating my drivers, which I downloaded from the Acer support site, but it did not work. All gestures are not working. What I need to do. Is this a result of updating Windows? How can I undo the update?

Dell :: Studio XPS 1640 New Multi-touch Gestures?

Jan 11, 2010

Ever since I upgraded to Windows 7 and installed the Dell Synaptic Drivers v13.2.2.2, I seem to have gained additional touchpad gestures.

Along with the original chiral-scroll and two-finger zoom I now have:

-two-finger scrolling (vertical and horizontal)
-three-finger forward/back for web browsers and the Windows image viewer
-rotate
-three-finger quick launch (holding three fingers down for 1 second opens notepad)
-momentum (I'm not sure if this one is new)

Acer Aspire V5 :: TouchPad Gestures Not Working

Jul 25, 2013

I first noticed the issue with sensitivity. The mouse was really sensitive. I then noticed that the gestures don't work either. I cannot scroll using the mouse. So I went into great depths and tried to figure out the problem (but no solution).
 
So I performed these steps:
-Changed the pointer speed to the fastest (I didn't like the slow pointer speed). The pointer was still pretty slow.
-Decided to change the TouchPad specific drivers. I go to the ELAN tab under mouse settings. I look and see that the "Options" button is greyed out. I also noticed that it said "Standard PS/2 Mouse"I decide to find the software to change the settings and located it in C:Program FilesElantech. I open ETDAniConf.exe and decide to do a test. I uncheck the right click and left click, and some other scroll settings. No avail.
-Then I decide to uninstall and install the drivers. Did that. Nothing changed. Changing the tapping, button, scrolling options does nothing. The mouse settings still shows it as "Standard PS/2 Mouse" even though the tab says ELAN.
-I decide to take a big step and just reinstall Windows 8 altogether using Acer Recovery. Reinstalled it, still facing the same issue. Still recognized as "Standard PS/2" mouse.
-I try another way to attempt to fix the issue. I try to find the most up to date similar driver. I located on that was much newer (2013 version rather than 08.2012). Installed it, restarted computer. Still no avail. Still recognized as "Standard PS/2 Mouse".I decided to go the last route before posting the issue here. I downloaded a copy of Windows 8 Pro from Microsoft website and transferred the ISO into the bootable flash drive. I split the hard drive into a clean partition (60GB) and installed fresh Windows 8 Pro on it, without all the Acer Drivers. Of couse I was missing the network drivers so I had to go on my Desktop to download the drivers online.
- I decide to first go and download the TouchPad drivers. Downloaded them, copied on a Flash Drive, ran them on the Acer laptop. Restarted computer. Still facing the issue. 

I got the laptop for a good discount from my work (as a bonus of working there). It was a one time discount. As you noticed, I mentioned that it was recognizing it as "Standard PS/2 Mouse". That is the huge clue that tells me that the drivers are really buggy. The issue here is that the TouchPad drivers are not recognized like it is a TouchPad, but as a Mouse. A mouse that can only do right click, left click.

Acer :: Aspire V5 / TouchPad Gestures Not Working

Feb 27, 2015

I rarely use the laptop's touch pad and use a wireless USB mouse. I forgot my mouse and the touch pad wouldn't work when I started up laptop. Borrowed someone's wired USB mouse and it worked, so I ran to Walmart and picked up a $7 wired mouse.
 
Control Panel > Programs and Features > Elan > Unistall > Reboot = Touch pad now working.
 
But apparently the Elan didn't reinstall as I don't see it anymore in the Programs and Features list. I thought about downloading and installing the Elan drivers, but I don't want to "fix" something that isn't broken right now.
 
/edited to say *wireless* USB mouse

Dell Inspiron Duo 1090 :: Multi-touch Not Working After Upgrade Datasafe To 9.4.60

Sep 25, 2011

I have dell inspiron duo 1090 with a multi touch screen suportted in windows 7, and the multi touch feature (right click with 2 fingers touch, zooming) used to work until I upgraded dell datasafe local backup to version 9.4.60 (after automatic reminder) and after this install the touch screen is working but the multi-tocuh functionality doesn't (although it was enabled in the windows settings) - no zooming or right click with 2 features touch, after I restored this software to version 9.4.51 the multi-touch is back to work, I checked this again and again to isolate the source of the problem and it really seems like a strange bug in datasafe 9.4.60.

How do I report this bug to dell so I could update the dell datasafe to an updated version but without loosing the multi-touch functionality.

Acer Aspire E3 112 :: Right Click On Synaptic Touchpad Not Working On Ubuntu 14.04 Or 14.10

Jan 31, 2015

I have successfully installed Ubuntu on my Aspire E3 112 and after a bit of fannying around with setting a System Password in the BIOS and trusting the Grub2 EFI settings, I have a stable system that boots in to both Ubuntu and Windows 8.1 with Bing. 
 
BUT , The right click doesn't work on the Synaptic Touchpad. No matter where I click on the touchpad it is recognised as a left click.
 
I've tried installing the GPointing Device Setting but  there aren't any config settings for right click.
 
I've heard that Synaptics have a product (Synaptics Gesture Suite for Linux -  SGS-L) but it's only available to OEM suppliers.

Dell Latitude E7240 :: Touchpad Multi Finger Gestures

Nov 15, 2014

Latitude E7240 has Touchpad Alps. All works fine except settings "Flick" (Gestures -> Multi Finger Gestures).

This setting works, but after some time (random period) stops working. To fix this I need restart Apoint.exe or go to settings, deselect Flick and select it again.

My laptop's BIOS has latest version A11 and all drivers installed from web site Dell.

Also, I tried to install Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 with touchpad drivers only, but this did not solve problem.

Dell :: Vostro V13No Virtual Scrolling Or Multi Gestures Capabilities

Mar 7, 2010

I recently bought a Vostro V13 (base model) with Celeron 743 + 2gb ram = Ubuntu 9.10.

I decided to switch to Windows 7 64bit. Everything runs fine, except for the touchpad. I doesn't have any multi touch capability what so ever.

I tried a few things:
Update driver automatically
Update driver directly from Synaptics
Install driver from Alps

Nothing worked. Now, I just realized that the Synaptics setting option doesn't even has the "virtual scrolling menu".

Acer Aspire V5 573G :: Installing Win 7 But It Does Not Work

Sep 3, 2014

have bought a new Acer Aspire V5 573G without a system software. Now I want to install Windows 7 home premium 64bit on it but it doesn't work. First of all: Is it generally possible to do this? I tried to install it in the recovery mode but there was an error (something with the GPT Partition) so I switched the Mode to UEFI. I have read in other message boards that I have to switch to UEFI csm (compatibility support mode) but I can't find it.

Acer Aspire V5-573G :: Nvidia Optimus Does Not Switch

Nov 16, 2014

I'm currently using Acer Aspire V5-573G, which uses Nvidia GT750M.

Whenever I run games or graphics-intensive program such as the adobe premier pro, the program will continue to run using the Intel HD graphics and not the Nvidia driver.

I've tried changing the settings in the Nvidia control panel to use Nvidia graphics driver for all programs, but running the optimus tool will show me that the Nvidia GPU is not being used for any of the programs.

Acer Aspire V5-573G :: Very Unstable Wireless Connection

Oct 23, 2014

For a while now the wireless connection on my laptop has been very unstable. I had used it for about six months without experiencing problems, but a month or two ago I started getting very frustated with it. 
 
The wireless can be turned on just fine and has no trouble finding available networks. No problem here. But when I try to connect to one it rarely works, and the few times were it does connect, the internet is incredibly slow. I would say it works flawlessly and fast about 10% of the time. The rest of the time it's like I just explained; it either won't connect or is too slow. 
 
I don't know what suddenly caused this, since it worked perfectly when I bought it.  Updating the wireless card drivers didn't work.

Acer Aspire V5-573g :: Can't Disable Edge Swipe - Win 8.1

Nov 18, 2014

According to the solutions I found when I googled the problem, I should be able to disable edge swipe by simply updating the synaptics drivers and turning off "edge swipe" under synpatics settings. However, there is no such setting even with the latest drivers 17.xx 
 
According to a link given as a solution to the same problem, this page was given as a link, and its the same solution I saw on google. [URL] .....
 
However, I do not have the option to turn it off under settings.

Acer Aspire V3 472P 35FZ :: Touch Pad And Mouse Not Working

Feb 28, 2015

I have tried all the other tips and driver downloads, removing battery, reloading drivers, sleep "wake up", all with temporary success. Acer says to refresh the computer, that does not work either. It is new with about 20 hours on it. I took the first machine back to retailer and same situation with the new machine. 
 
Clearly this is an issue with Acer notebook touchpads and at least in my case W8.1. That is why google is littered with search titles for acer touch pads not working.

Acer Aspire E1 :: Touch Randomly Stops Working - Windows 8.1

Mar 5, 2015

I have had my aspire e1 touch for a couple months now and a couple weeks in it randomly wouldn't detect the touch ability.  I have to shut the laptop down and back on again for it to work (simple restart won't work)  It's a new computer so I haven't upgraded any os, it's running with the Windows 8.1 it came with and I have chrome as the browser.  It seems to happen when I wake it from sleep, not in the middle of using it.  When the touch is not working, the device manager doesn't even detect that touch is an option (it's hidden, but grey and cannot be enabled)....

Apple :: Multi Touch Vs Mouse

Aug 16, 2009

I actually find it easier to use the multi touch compared to the mouse somehow, the touchpad is big so i can navigate as easily as with a mouse and the multitouch gestures make it so much better to use.

I was thinking of getting a mighty mouse but im not sure its worth it as apple gestures make navigateing so good. are the press buttons on the mighty mouse just 1 button or two.

Apple :: Not To Use Multi-touch In Android

Feb 12, 2009

[url]

So Apple told Google not to use multi-touch gestures in its Google Android phone and Google listened to them. The phone is capable of multitouch gestures, but Apple told Google not to use it to protect the iPhone.

Is Apple out of line? Are they Microsoft Jr.? Is Apple replaying the patenting of a GUI OS from the 1980s?

Apple is stifling innovation with these anti-competitive practices.
