take a look here:
558 * Send a single relative packet in 3-byte PS/2 format to the PS/2 controller.
559 * @param s keyboard state object
560 * @param dx relative X value, must be between -256 and +255
561 * @param dy relative y value, must be between -256 and +255
562 * @param fButtonsLow the state of the two first mouse buttons
563 * @param fButtonsPacked the state of the upper three mouse buttons and
564 * scroll wheel movement, packed as per the
565 * MOUSE_EXT_* defines. For standard PS/2 packets
566 * only pass the value of button 3 here.
I see.. nobody cares about laptop users.
I managed to get it work with third party utility but only two finger horizontal scroll works in that mode..
So stupid NOT to use technologies to make usage more convinient for end-users.
And expect users actually buying such product when there is free alternative. What do we pay for ??
it's ridiculous 2 months and still no answer!
lots of users are demanding support for touchpad scrolling ..
come on is it really hard to rip from VirtualBox implementation?
This driver seems to work for me on my Thinkpad T61p even though it's not supported:
Vertical scrolling works, but horizontal doesn't... I guess you can't have it all in this game!
thanks for the reply, but which driver, can you clarify?
that page gives me nothing and I do not have Lenovo, mine is HP.
Hmm. For some reason I thought this was related to the Thinkpads because I was having that problem on mine. I think the Thinkpad has the same device but I'm not sure. I suppose you could try the driver and if it didn't work you could probably boot in safe mode to uninstall it or use a mouse. Maybe it's worth a try?
Ha, it might be that your drivers worked actually, but maybe not..
Because here is what I did:
1) Uninstalled my drivers
3) Tried installing yours but setup.exe simply didnt run, so I went into the subdirectory it created and tried invoking setup.exe from there..
4) Seems to be I've lost the ability to control advanced options of the touchpad, but horizontal scrolling works now in VMWare, it could be VMWare incompatability with Synaptics TouchPad drivers.
5) I have Synaptics TouchPad device on the HP laptop.
Actually I've just uninstalled my drivers completely and that worked for some reason, thats weird tho.
Because in VirtualBox "it just works" with my drivers installed, but not in VMWare.
Still needs an answer from VMWare guys about this.
!!! SOLUTION !!!
I'll just put it here. windows 7 - Use Synaptics Touchpad Scroll in VMware Guest - Super User
It's for Workstation, don't know whether it works for Player, but I don't think it'll be very hard to modify it to do so.
Finally there is a fix for this problem, its a little utility called MultiSwipe, it lets you map any keyboard keys to your touchpad and it lets you scroll in VMWare, you can map alt 1,2,3,4 and change between desktops if you are using Dexpot and it works with VMWare, it enables 2 finger scrolling in the guest OS, you can download it at http://www.multiswipe.com
For what it is worth I have been experiencing the same issue for years and have been frustrated as well.
However, after recently upgrading to Windows 10, the two finger scrolling works on my Ubuntu virtual machine in my VMware Workstation 11.
Driver support plus driver signing must be the reason why it's taking so long.
But VBox has nailed it already!
Is anyone from vmware ever going to make a comment on this issue.
I just installed VMWare Workstation Player 12 on my Windows 8.1 box, and Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit as the guest OS. This is on a HP laptop with a Synaptics Touchpad V7.5, and I've discovered that two-finger vertical scroll works -- but only if VMWare Workstation Player 12 is run as administrator. If it's not, everything else seems to be the same except for two-finger scrolling doesn't work.
