Trackpad scrolling not working all of a sudden
« on: March 05, 2017, 03:07:44 am »
Two finger, up/down scrolling function has stopped on my Surface Book.  I have to disable ReHIPS, to get trackpad scrolling back.

You didn't get a prompt/alert when the system boot after installing ReHIPS?
does your pad has an interface? if yes , launch it and allow it.

alert from RehIPS if you set it on expert mode. sometimes the hardware depends on a GUI-ed driver , the "GUI" may need to load for the feature to function.

Does the scrolling stop in all windows, like when you scroll files in a folder, browsers, etc.?

There was a similar issue with isolated environment programs. If a program is isolated, some touchpad drivers fail to operate correctly with gestures. Some don't recognize separate isolated desktop, some fail to work even on main desktop. We tried to contact vendor and report this issue but to no avail. I guess it's the similar issue.

Well, I opened another browser, Vivaldi...still, not working...but, that ReHiPS 'arrow', for indicating different desktops, is showing.

Still, have Opera browser loaded, and now, scrolling is working in the browser.  Now, that is strange.

Vivaldi is on another desktop because it needs hooks controls while opera doesn't need them so it runs on the same desktop. This is why it doesn't function in vivaldi and works in opera.

@Tarnak What trackpad do you have exactly? Synaptics Touchpad?
I am asking because the new version on synaptic Touchpad seems to function in an isolated environment even though it's only on default settings. It recognizes you are on a different user so it starts with default settings which you have no way to change. At least not from a gui.

Maybe the problem is the same as mine. But I asked him whether gestures don't work in all windows, he answered yes (gestures don't work in all windows). So, I just presumed that we have different, but maybe similar, problems with touchpads. :)

Microsoft is using it's own proprietary technology in the Surface Book. - "Precision Touchpad made its debut with Windows 8. Co-developed between Microsoft and touchpad company Synaptics, the spec changed how Windows works with touchpads."
