Just got my Arch Linux XFCE box up, customized & running. One thing I missed most was ‘vertical scrolling’ with the touchpad. So, I went through the great knowledge base of Arch Linux wiki and finally found out what’s needed.

First install the synaptics driver: pacman -S xf86-input-synaptics Then install the GUI app: pacman -S gsynaptics You should now find it under Applications Menu > Settings > Mouse and Touchpad.
