Hi, i have problem with macbook 4.1 trackpad. Second button (two fingers+button) stoped working, now it works how first :confused: , how it fix??? (sorry for my English :) )
thank You for answers.
I installed Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on a Macbook Pro (Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM) and (aside from errors on every...single..startup) is working okay. Unfortunately, the trackpad doesn't work. The buttons below the trackpad work, but the actual pad does not move the cursor at all. The trackpad is recognized when I run xlist and when I go into the Mousepad and Trackpad settings it is there.
I have fixed my trackpad's crappy sensitivity using this and also this. While both of these problems are fixed, and the trackpad is much nicer now, there's one thing preventing me from calling it perfect. Trying to two finger click is horrendous now. Any time I try to place two fingers on the trackpad and click, it scrolls.
Hey. I've just recently started using Ubuntu on my MacBook, and I actually quite like it. A major problem I've run into, however, is that the trackpad is rather sluggish and stiff. I have to press a whole section of my finger on the trackpad for it to register anything, and even then it moves quite slow. I've tried cranking up the sensitivity and acceleration, but that's not worked either.
I want to install Crunchbang on my 2006 Macbbook but there is an issue with the trackpad. Currently I am using the Live CD and am unable to find a way to "right click". In Linux Mint on the Macbook I am able to tap the trackpad with two fingers which acts as a right click.
By default on mac os, with two fingers I can do this:
-leave a finger on the mouse pad, and move another finger, and still be able to move the mouse
-two finger scrolling requires both fingers be moving
this is handy, as sometimes (because the trackpad is so large, I leave my thumb on the "button" (or any other fingers depending on how I'm sitting) for clicking, as clicking AND moving the cursor
I've just installed ubuntu 12.10 on my macbook 1,1 (april 2006).
everything seems to be fine except the trackpad.
the response is very slow and inaccurate, however both the left and the right click works fine.
do you think it's a driver problem?
or unity is too heavy for such an old cpu?
I have a Lenove Ideapad Flex 10 here with Windows 8.1. Strangely enough the OS is 32 bits, while the CPU supports 64 bits. The laptop has a Synaptics trackpad that supports multitouch. I can scroll with two fingers, similar like on a Mac. The trackpad has two button areas for left and right clicking.
I have an Acer Aspire 5738, with Ubuntu 9.10. When I go to the Mouse preferences window, there is a General tab, and an accesibility tab, but no trackpad tab. I know there should be one based on using Karmic on different laptops. So, anyone know how to get my beloved trackpad back?
