I have Dell XPS 17 702X notebook with on board Synaptic TouchPad.
I recently updated Dell licensed Windows 7 to Windows 10 with only issue to get work WiFi driver to be able to receive other via Windows Update.
My notebook is officially out of warranty and support period and officially Dell doesn't support Windows 10 for my laptop.
But I receive all necessary drivers via Windows Update.
My primary OS is Debian and Xorg drivers for Synaptic provides two finger scroll to me.
Windows 10 register Synaptic TouchPad as PS/2 Compatible (Microsoft I8042prt Driver from 2006 year) and so there are no option to edit gesture preference.
Occasionally I should make tasks on Windows and wander how can I make two finger scroll on Windows?
Synaptic driver download page for TouchPad series list pack with size of 130 MB. I think that it is bloatware and afraid that my system hijacked by vendor ads/spying programs. Am I wrong?
UPDATE I check zip content and seems that most space take a
.wav files. So I assume that installers are not bloated.
I try both (Windows 10 PS/2 and SMBus Devices v18.104.22.168 and Windows 10 I2C Devices v22.214.171.124) setups. Both reported success on installation finish but even after rebooting TouchPad uses old Microsoft signed drivers.
There are note on driver download page:
NOTE: Installing a generic driver may result in the loss of OEM-customized Synaptics pointing device functionality
Seems that Microsoft generic mouse driver prevent from properly registering Symantec drivers. Any suggestions here?
