Earlier I posted a question looking for how to scroll with 2 fingers and I
appreciate the quick responses. I forgot to say that going into System >
Preferences > Mouse and finding two finger scrolling doesn't work. I have
the box checked, and have messed with the settings countless times with no
change. I know that two finger scrolling (like how a macbook scrolls) works
on my computer in Windows 7 and the sticker on my computer says
"multi-gesture TouchPad" (I'm doing a Windows 7 and Ubuntu dual boot). I
will also put up some specs to my computer as well. Thanks again.

I've spent hours looking through different forums on how to enable 2 finger
scrolling without any luck. The most recent one I have tried is posted here

I couldn't understand what it was saying at the "final script" area If
someone could help guide me through this process of enabling 2 finger
scrolling it would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.*
