If by 'keypad' you really mean 'touchpad', yes:

synclient VertEdgeScroll=1

then move your finger up and down along the right edge of the touchpad 
to scroll.  Similarly, for horizontal scrolling:

synclient HorizEdgeScroll=1

see also http://wiki.debian.org/SynapticsTouchpad and the 'synaptics' 
man page.
