    Re: xf86-input-mtrack: The Other Multitouch Trackpad Driver

    Hi all,

    Any updates on the libmtdev1 for Lucid?. I still can't find it and I'm really willing to try this driver.

    Thanks,

    Edit: I actually found them in the first post under Downloads. Don't know how I did not see them before.... Now I will try it.

    The same problem here. I'm under Lucid with a MacbookPro 5.5.

    Any ideas what is going on?

    Thanks!

    Re: xf86-input-mtrack: The Other Multitouch Trackpad Driver

    Hey all. Does anyone know if this driver is supposed to support the new MacBookAir4,2? I installed xserver-xorg-input-mtrack_0.2.0_natty_amd64.deb and don't seem to get any notice of mtrack in Xorg.0.log (attached).

    Thanks!

    Update: I modified the bcm5974 driver and posted about it here.

    Unhappy Re: xf86-input-mtrack: The Other Multitouch Trackpad Driver

    Hi everyone,

    I installed xf86-input-mtrack on Fedora 15 64 bits (I had to compile it manually with the autotools) and everything seemed to went fine... until I tried to load it. It then failed to load and the trackpad was not recognized anymore.

    Here is what I have in the log file:
    Code:
    [   981.184] (II) config/udev: Adding input device bcm5974 (/dev/input/event10)
    [   981.184] (**) bcm5974: Applying InputClass "evdev touchpad catchall"
    [   981.184] (**) bcm5974: Applying InputClass "touchpad catchall"
    [   981.184] (**) bcm5974: Applying InputClass "Touchpads"
    [   981.184] (II) LoadModule: "mtrack"
    [   981.186] (WW) Warning, couldn't open module mtrack
    [   981.186] (II) UnloadModule: "mtrack"

    [   981.187] (II) config/udev: Adding input device bcm5974 (/dev/input/mouse1)
    [   981.187] (**) bcm5974: Applying InputClass "Touchpads"
    [   981.187] (II) LoadModule: "mtrack"
    [   981.188] (WW) Warning, couldn't open module mtrack
    [   981.188] (II) UnloadModule: "mtrack"
    [   981.188] (II) Unloading mtrack
    [   981.188] (EE) Failed to load module "mtrack" (module does not exist, 0)
    [   981.188] (EE) No input driver matching `mtrack'
    Upon installation, it says the libraries were installed in "/usr/local/lib/xorg/modules/input" and I indeed found the mtrack_drv.la and mtrack_drv.so files there.

    As indicated in the reademe, I have created an xorg.conf file (with the "Xorg :1 -configure" command, as in Fedora, there is no xorg.conf file by default) and added the basic section:

    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        Identifier      "Touchpads"
        Driver          "mtrack"
    EndSection
    I know this is an Ubuntu forum, but this thread seems to be the only official forum for the mtrack driver. I hope someone will be able to help.

    Kind regards,

    Ben

    I'm not familiar with Fedora, but try copying the mtrack_drv.so file to /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input (i.e. /usr/lib instead of /usr/local/lib). That's where Ubuntu expects to find it.

    Thanks. I tried that and it did not work unfortunately. I will try and ask on Fedora forums and keep you in touch.

    Re: xf86-input-mtrack: The Other Multitouch Trackpad Driver

    I am running Ubuntu 11.04 on my Macbook Pro. The only option I want is to be able to click and drag windows like I can in OSX (ex. click down with one finger and use the other to move the window) After looking through the option, I can't seem to figure out which option I need to configure to what value. Also, being very new at Ubuntu, I am having troubles figuring out how to install it. Any insight?

    Re: xf86-input-mtrack: The Other Multitouch Trackpad Driver

    hi
    no reference to touchegg here
    this linux soft is really great for improve the multitouch trackpad capatibility

    the project's home: https://code.google.com/p/touchegg/

    actually it only work with synaptics and evdev but not mtrack

    Do you think it will be complicated to fix that issue ?
    mtrack is the best driver for me and i really want the best of the two

    any help greatly appreciate

    for information, the best way to test it is to compile it from source SVN

    svn checkout http://touchegg.googlecode.com/svn/touchegg/ touchegg-read-only

    sudo apt-get install build-essential libqt4-dev utouch libx11-6 libxtst-dev
    cd touchegg-read-only
    qmake
    make
    make install

    here is an example of config file


    mkdir -p .config/touchegg/ && gedit .config/touchegg/touchegg.conf

    <touchégg>
    <settings>
    <property name="composed_gestures_time">0</property>

    for anyone having the module requirement mismatch ...

    Code:
    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:xorg-edgers
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    this updated xorg and fixed it for me. thanks to bluedragon for the idea via PM.

    Re: xf86-input-mtrack: The Other Multitouch Trackpad Driver

    Is using the "ignorethumb" feature the only way I can click the botto left corner of the touchpad while still using my right finger to move the mouse?
