Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  Default synaptics behaviour: two-finger scroll is enabled by default if multitouch is supported by the touchpad.

Works fine here. The synclient output indicates you use two-finger scrolling. Is this what you were expecting, or did you try to scroll using the edges?
Comment by mark (mmm) - Monday, 21 March 2011, 21:20 GMT
Hello guys,
Jan, thank you for the tip - i really had the 2-finger scrolling enabled and working. Even though I swear I don't remember turning it on!? Anyway, just going to kde's systemsettings mouse module fixes the issue - without me doing anything again ;) there's no option - sidescrolling/2finger, but rightafter the scrollbars start to work.
I suggest closing this as solved-weird.
PS: just the same issue happened to someone on ml, linking him here.
Thank you, Marek

hmm sorry, so revert again. verified that it's upgrade to kernel 2.6.38 who breaks it and downgrade to .37 that fixes the issue.
Comment by Jan de Groot (JGC) - Monday, 21 March 2011, 23:00 GMT
Can you attach dmesg outputs and Xorg.0.log files for 2.6.37 and 2.6.38?
Comment by mark (mmm) - Saturday, 26 March 2011, 10:03 GMT
Ok,
so it's finally solved.
As Emmanuel sugested on ML under the kernel 2.6.38-1 signoff thread,
it's upstream code change, two finger scrolling is the defaults now,
to get back the sidebar scrolling, edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf
and add lines:
Option "VertEdgeScroll" "true"
more in man synaptics

After this, all works fine.
Thank you
