enable two finger scroll for Lenovo Thinkpad in Ubuntu

By default, the tow finger scroll option is disabled in the setting

two finger scroll disabled

Step 1: I created a shell script enableMultitouch.sh as root in the directory /usr/local/bin/ and made it executable. (As described here: http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Autostart#Autostart-ueber-Skript.)

Step 2: I pasted the commands as mentioned in the post that described how to enable multi-touch:

#!/bin/sh
xinput --set-prop --type=int --format=32 "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" "Synaptics Two-Finger Pressure" 4
xinput --set-prop --type=int --format=32 "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" "Synaptics Two-Finger Width" 8
xinput --set-prop --type=int --format=8  "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" "Synaptics Two-Finger Scrolling" 1 0

Step 3: Finally I added the script to the startup applications. And now two-finger-scrolling works just fine.
