Macbook Pro Touchpad Emulation

view story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – I've been tinkering with various settings for both xf86-input-synaptics and xf86-input-mtrack-git from the AUR. They both work relatively well, but I can't quite get the functionality I'd like from either and am hoping someone here has found a solution. Synaptics seems to be great in terms of precision and sensitivity, but I often like to have my thumb resting on the bottom of the trackpad, which when I have two finger scrolling turned on, causes the mouse to scroll instead of move the pointer. Simply defining a portion of the bottom of the trackpad as a deadzone would be suffic (HowTos)
