I know that I would want my work to be credited if someone else was writing an app to install/uninstall it. Just a thought.

Keep up the good work!
Let me be clear that I did not create any of the drivers. All the drivers were created by meklort. You can check this thread - http://mydellmini.com/forum/touchpad...7111101654efab. All I did was create an applescript application to install the drivers.

bmcclure937 - thanks for the reminder. Meklort was mentioned on pages 2 and six but not on the first. I will make the edit now.

Let me just say many thanks to meklort for creating these drivers. I most certenly don't have the tallent for that.

I am just glad I could help. I actually made it for myself and figured other would like to use it too. I guess thats how most software gets created though.

8-) I really thank northmendo about the great installer.

I just wonder if anyone tried the installer on DellEFI 1.2a5? Does it work?

I am not sure if it works with 1.2 or not. Anyone try it yet?

After a short idiocy episode (tried install without ensuring I was using DellEFI 1.1), the drivers are now in place and I'm two-fingerin' all over the joint. Top man! Thanks for creating this install package.

the installation went fine, no errors, and I can see the icon in the pref pane. I enabled two fingered scrolling but im not sure if it's actually enabled. im not familiar with two fingered scrolling so I dont know what success would be. not with my mini at the moment but im going to run the dellefi again when i get home, will that do the trick? what should i look forto determine my trackpad has the new features?

many thanks in advance!!

I downloaded and tried to install the touchpad drivers using your script. I tried to enable the edge scrolling in the preference pane, like it works on a typical WinXP setup. No go. As far as I can tell, with the exception of installing a preference pane, nothing else seems to have happened. I have a pretty recent install, as I just got everything onto my Mini over the past weekend. Suggestions????
