Installing now..

Thanks for the link, nice find. Multitouch (2 finger scrolling in particular) is a VERY nice feature that I got spoiled with on my Macbook that I would LOVE to have on my Mini. Yay!

This makes the touchpad bearable now. Try it :-)

I know this thread is a bit old (but since I just got my 1012, it's new to me!).

Anyway, here is the most recent driver that works great! The Scrybe shortcuts are really neat!

I can't post links yet, so you'll have to copy, paste and edit:

I hated the trackpad, but the best is the one click lock for dragging and highlighting!

The multitouch drivers pegged CPU usage at 40% for me, which doesn't leave much for processing.
