Enable Edge Scrolling and Two-Finger Scrolling on Ubuntu 12.10

In this short article, I will show you how to enable both the Edge Scrolling and the Two-Finger Scrolliong on Ubuntu 12.10.

The task can be done with the synclient tool:

Enable Vertical Edge Scrolling: synclient VertEdgeScroll=1

Enable Two Finger Scrolling: synclient VertTwoFingerScroll=1

Enable Horizontal Edge Scrolling: synclient HorizEdgeScroll=1

Enable Horizontal Two Finger Scrolling: synclient HorizTwoFingerScroll=1

Add this two code lines to ~/.bash_rc or ~/.bash_profile to make the settings persistent
