    Re: new xf86-input for macbooks and other multitouch-touchpads.

    OK, I think we do need an updated guide now.

    so, we need to install these:
    sudo apt-get install bcm5974-dkms git-core xserver-xorg-dev libmtdev-dev
    right?

    and, Kosumi said "There is also a package in ppa now", which one is it?

    PD: I bought more ram, so now I just virtualize ubuntu when I need it, but that doesn't mean I don't want to help

    After upgrading to Natty the driver no longer works... pre-upgrade everything worked fine, but now my mouse will not move. When I try to compile BlueDragonX's version above I see the following error:

    Natty has a newer version of Xorg. I've got to update the driver to work with it. I'm updating X on my machines at the moment then I'll see what I can do.

    I have a couple of features I intend to add to the driver, as well as rename it (not affiliated with the original developer, it's a fork after all).

    A work in progress, as always.

    Re: new xf86-input for macbooks and other multitouch-touchpads.

    EDIT: After a reboot the keyboard works fine. However when I ran the command I still cannot use the mouse.
    I tried this following the instructions on page 13. However, when I logged out and back in the mouse wouldn't work as it told me. But I couldn't get into terminal as most of my keyboard keys didn't work either.

    Re: new xf86-input for macbooks and other multitouch-touchpads.

    Better question than my above. Being not but a wee noob I don't know how to reverse this so I can use my mouse again. Any help appreciated.

    Figured it out. Still can't get touchpad to work though. Help much appreciated.

    Has somebody else gotten it working in Lucid? How have you configured it?

    Re: new xf86-input for macbooks and other multitouch-touchpads.

    Gentlemen! I've made some progress on my fork of the driver.

    Firstly, my code is now on github at https://github.com/BlueDragonX/xf86-input-mtrack. To get your copy:

    Code:
    git clone git://github.com/BlueDragonX/xf86-input-mtrack.git
    Secondly, my fork of the driver is now named xf86-input-mtrack. The driver itself is referred to as mtrack in the configuration. So:

    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        Identifier      "Touchpads"
        Driver          "mtrack"
    EndSection
    Thirdly, the trunk code at github works with Xorg 1.10, so you should be good for compiling on Natty.

    Lastly, please report any issues to the issues tracker on github.

    Thank you. I have done some initial testing on my Macbook Air 3,2 running Natty and the driver works quite well.
