That's why I asked, I'm aware that it can damage important stuff. The click_patch posted on page two fails to work at the final step where the "make" and "make" install commands are listed, it fails like this:
I don't really understand the problem, I followed the other directions to the letter...Code:chris@Free-Cookies-Net:~/linux-source-2.6.32$ make make -C /lib/modules/2.6.32-21-generic/build SUBDIRS=/home/chris/linux-source-2.6.32 modules make: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-21-generic' CC kernel/bounds.s /home/chris/linux-source-2.6.32/kernel/bounds.c:1: fatal error: can’t open kernel/bounds.s for writing: Permission denied compilation terminated. make: *** [kernel/bounds.s] Error 1 make: *** [_module_/home/chris/linux-source-2.6.32] Error 2 make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-21-generic' make: *** [default] Error 2 chris@Free-Cookies-Net:~/linux-source-2.6.32$
To anyone stuck trying to get right click working in 10.10, here is what I did. The xorg.conf.d folder changed locations in 10.10 so I created the file:
I then copied this into the file, saved, and restarted:
I'm not a huge fan of two finger scrolling and the multi-touch never seems to work quite how I like it, so I used the file above to enable two finger tapping to right click. I then went into the Mouse menu item under System >> Preferences >> Touchpad and selected edge scrolling. Smooth sailing under 10.10 now with right click and edge scrolling!Code:Section "InputClass" Identifier "touchpad catchall" MatchProduct "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" MatchIsTouchpad "on" Driver "synaptics" Option "JumpyCursorThreshold" "200" Option "EmulateTwoFingerMinZ" "20" Option "EmulateTwoFingerMinW" "5" Option "TapButton2" "3" Option "PalmDetect" "on" EndSection
Sigh... I was really hoping this would be sorted out in 10.10 since this is such a popular netbook.
SEX, Now that I have your attention please read my post

Just for future purposes "You're Welcome"
I'm not going to dive into this all and mess around, because I'm still adjusting to Ubuntu after running XP and Vista and 7 for a long time on my desktop, so anyone got a simple way to re-enable Multi-touch scrolling and right clicking (preferably within the boundaries of the respective markings for right and left clicking on the trackpad) on the Mini 210?
I'm getting a bit sick of having to press a physical keyboard button to open the right click menu
Whew! I got two finger scrolling and two-finger tap for right-click working in 10.10!
Put the "11-touchpad.conf" file found on page 6 of this thread in to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ (while running as root)
Then while running under your normal account execute
in the terminal as mentioned by John Baptist on page 6Code:gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/peripherals/touchpad/scroll_method 2 --type int
I now have "mostly" everything working the way it used to under 10.04
ie: The physical right click button is no longer working. Which isn't the end of the world, but I have found instances where the physical button was useful.
I hope this helps
And now the physical right click is magically working. Go figure.
Right click worked for my netbook in 10.04...but no dice in 10.10. Will try the "page 6 solution"....I'm nervous
