As it turns out, companies such as Lenovo and Samsung have provided beta drivers for their touchpads to use Windows 8's new fetures (Lenovo having a synaptics device).
I have an HP ProBook 4530s with a Synaptics LuxPad v7.5, and I was wondering: Am I going to get new drivers capable of executing these gestures? If so, would they be provided by HP, or Synaptics? Also, when would I see these drivers, or get to use them? Even if beta drivers, I would love to test them.
At any rate, any answers would be greatly appreciated.
I did exactly as you said: unimstalled the original drivers, restarted, installed the new drivers you provided, restarted. No luck. Upon restart, the touchpad indicator light in the top left corner of the touchpad is lit orange (as if it's deactivated). The touchpad works, but scrolling and any other gesture doesn't. Upon opening "Mouse" in control panel, It gives me an error saying the driver is incompatible. MS upate reverts the driver to version 184.108.40.206. What can I do?
Awesome, so I did as you said (ran it in Win 7 campatability) and as administrator. The drivers work, all configured, except I don't see the Windows 8 gestures I refered to. the closest thing are the corner buttons, but that isn't the same as Windows 8 slide-in touchpad gestures.
