    Macbook Santa Rosa. Is 8.04 solving old problems?

    Hi!!

    I have installed 7.10 on my macbook Santa Rosa. I can't run compiz, nor use the touchpad (can't use right-button nor scrolling). I wonder if I upgrade to 8.04 I will be able to do that two things (and if not, what is worth with 8.04 in macbook to get it installed?) .

    Thank you very much!!!!!!

    Mine is MacBook ver 3,1 SantaRosa
    I Just installed Hardy

    *Keyboard is working.. (Some function keys like brightness are not working..)
    *Touchpad is working.. Need to be configured to get right click
    *Desktop effects are enabled by default and are working fine..

    There are other things that need to be configured.. I followed this guide..

    Third gen MacBook here, sound is not working for me, and my external monitor is merely cloning. I am trying to resolve these two issues.

    Touchpad is working, and wifi worked using ndiswrapper.

    I just configured sound.. This is what I did..

    *added options snd_hda_intel model=mbp3 to /etc/modprobe.d/options
    *reboot
    *update-initramfs -u
    *reboot
    *opened sound properties and there in switches tab, I enabled speaker..

    Both Input from the mic & Output are working fine..
    But the volume of input from the mic is very low.. when I speak infront of the mic, It is able to record well, with good volume, but if I am a little bit far from it.. I barely can hear the recording..
    May be I should check some options.

    the way the recording is setup, there is a capture level and a Mic level. Make sure to adjust them both.

    Thanks for answering!!!


    So then no problem with touchpad (scrolling with two fingers and that stuff) and with desktop effects like the cube?

    Initially only mouse move and left click worked..

    To config right click & two finger scroll follow this, it worked fine..
    But the usual right click (like, placing two fingers on the touchpad and clicking the button) won't work.
    Both fingers should be placed on the touchpad at a time to make a right click.

    two finger and click can be achieved by applying a patch to xorg.. I found somewhere in this forum. But I don't use that feature..

    By the way, I did a fresh install, did not upgrade.
    I think all this should work fine for upgrade too.
