Adding 2-Finger Scrolling To Asus Eee PC 1005HA and 1008HA

While Asus Eee PC 1005HA and 1008HA has a touchpad that support multi-touch gestures, the 2-finger scrolling feature has been disabled. This feature, which allows users to scroll through web pages and other documents by placing 2 fingers on the touchpad and dragging up or down, used to be an available in the older Eee PC model such as the Eee PC 1000, 1000H, and 1000HE.

Now for all of those Eee PC 1005HA or 1008HA owners who find it inconvenient without the 2-finger scrolling feature, there are 2 solutions posted on EeeUser forum that you can apply. One is by installing a third-party app, while the other is by hacking the Synaptic touchpad driver. Read more about them on the forum: method 1, method 2.
