  Vertical scrolling through moving on the right side of the touchpad.
  The up/down button sends button four/five events.
  Horizontal scrolling through moving on the lower side of the touchpad.
  The multi-buttons send button events for scrolling.
  Adjustable finger detection.
  Multifinger taps (Not all hardware implements this feature.)
