I understand my MSI x350 notebook comes with a Sentelic trackpad, which supports multi-touch (according to the MSI website). Is there a way to enable multitouch on Ubuntu? I've been having difficulty finding info about this on google, and since it's not a synaptics touchpad I haven't been able to find much info in ubuntu docs. My mouse preferences doesn't have a trackpad tab like it does on, say, a Macbook.

Running "xinput list" returns: FSPPS/2 Sentelic FingerSensingPad id=11

And in my Xorg.0.log:

[ 17.481] (II) config/udev: Adding input device FSPPS/2 Sentelic FingerSensingPad (/dev/input/event6) [ 17.481] () FSPPS/2 Sentelic FingerSensingPad: Applying InputClass "evdev pointer catchall" [ 17.481] () FSPPS/2 Sentelic FingerSensingPad: always reports core events [ 17.481] () FSPPS/2 Sentelic FingerSensingPad: Device: "/dev/input/event6" [ 17.500] (II) FSPPS/2 Sentelic FingerSensingPad: Found 11 mouse buttons [ 17.500] (II) FSPPS/2 Sentelic FingerSensingPad: Found scroll wheel(s) [ 17.500] (II) FSPPS/2 Sentelic FingerSensingPad: Found relative axes [ 17.500] (II) FSPPS/2 Sentelic FingerSensingPad: Found x and y relative axes [ 17.500] (II) FSPPS/2 Sentelic FingerSensingPad: Configuring as mouse [ 17.500] () FSPPS/2 Sentelic FingerSensingPad: YAxisMapping: buttons 4 and 5 [ 17.500] (**) FSPPS/2 Sentelic FingerSensingPad: EmulateWheelButton: 4, EmulateWheelInertia: 10, EmulateWheelTimeout: 200 [ 17.500] (II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "FSPPS/2 Sentelic FingerSensingPad" (type: MOUSE) [ 17.500] (II) FSPPS/2 Sentelic FingerSensingPad: initialized for relative axes.
