I have installed 2.6.29-rc5 on my Ubuntu 9.04-alpha4.

synclient -l shows VertTwoFingerScroll = 1, synclient -m reports only
0 or 1 "f" columns.
So the two finger scrolling is not working. I can set or reset the
VertTwoFingerScroll variable with synclient
just fine.

So Im in the same boat as before. I hoped I couldnt set the two finger
scrolling variable
(because the kernel properly reports the touchpad capabilities).

So I dont know either if it is a hardware limitation or a software
lack of support.

Any more hint?

Best regards,
