Multitouch scroll on Ubuntu 10.04
The 10.04 upgrade broke the old solution for multitouch scroll. I found a working solution on the Ubuntu forums: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=9115953&postcount=18 Just save the script as a .sh file, chmod +x it, and add it to startup programs.

Anyone managed to get these working?

Mike now sort of works in Sound Recorder, but the noise level is very high: whine like fan noise plus some crackling. John Ringland February 03, 2010, at 11:20 AM
also you can supposedly:
Solution: Install the linux-backports-modules-alsa-karmic-generic packages. This package should include the fix too, but I don't know exactly which alsa version it provides. Using this solution, when a new kernel appears, it will also take care of reinstalling the newer alsa modules. Should it not work and/or you want to revert changes, uninstall all the linux-backports-modules-alsa packages using synaptic and reboot.
Anyone managed to get this working?
Yes! from the page dan linked to above:
Issue: after hibernating or suspending, the computer won't wake up properly.
Solution: gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf to edit the file and add the following (without quotes): "blacklist acer-wmi"
Conserve Battery by Forcing Lower CPU VoltageExecute the commands:
sudo -s cat /etc/init.d/ondemand | sed 's/\([ \"]\)ondemand\(.\)/\1powersave\2/' > /etc/init.d/ondemand /etc/init.d/ondemand restart exit
Does this result in a noticeable performance hit? Does this result in the laptop running (noticeably) cooler? or longer battery life?

Get Multitouch Scroll to work on your touchpad
Note, by default two-finger tap should be middle click, but Ubuntu 9.10 has a bug where it is now right click. This should be fixed in future versions (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-input-synaptics/+bug/432814 and https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=598820 : a patch exists, so if you're feeling adventurous you could recompile gnome-settings-daemon yourself to get the functionality). A temporary workaround which seems to stop working after a while of computer use is to execute the command "synclient TapButton2=2 TapButton3=3".
Alternatively, install gpointing-device-settings, (a GUI to configure touchpad and such), and run it. I like circular scrolling myself (iPod style).
Wireless button problem?
Has anyone had a problem switching their wireless back on?
Yes, this is the right forum.
Because the same action turns it both off and on, you have to be very definitive about pushing the switch fully and pushing it only once. Note that the system doesn't notice the activation immediately: you may have to wait 15-30 seconds.
This happened to me when they passed them out. I don't know why it happens but it came back on by itself after a few minutes.
