    Sorry for all the questions, but same issue. How can I start dispad? Running the command says that it's using the config file (which does exist) but it doesn't do anything. Running "ps aux" doesn't show anything either under dispad.

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

    I seem to be having problems installing this on my debian wheezy.

    If I try autoconf I get the following error:
    configure.ac:21: error:
    must install xorg-macros 1.8 or later before running autoconf/autogen

    I then tried autoreconf configure.ac ACLOAL="aclocal -I/usr/share/aclocal" because that is where my xorg-macros.m4 file is located. But this gives me the following error:
    configure.ac:17: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_DISABLE_STATIC
    If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
    See the Autoconf documentation.
    configure.ac:18: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_LIBTOOL

    Next I can do autoconf and automake --add-missing without errors. But when I do ./configure afterwards I get the following error:
    ......
    checking dependency style of gcc... (cached) gcc3
    configure: creating ./config.status
    config.status: error: cannot find input file: `Makefile.in'


    Can anyone help me trying to compile this on debian wheezy

    Thx in advance

    You might want to consider installing xorg-macros ;P

    I don't run debian, but I think it should just be "sudo apt-get install xorg-macros" or "util-macros". I can't seem to find it on Ubuntu though, so I might be wrong.

    I did install the xorg-macros, it is under the xutils-dev package afaik . So I don't get why I get these problems .

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

    So I've gone through quite a bit of headache getting natty using gnome 3 installed on my Macbook Pro (8,2).

    The last blocking item I have for using it on a daily basis is trackpad support. According to the wiki this should work out of the box with minimal effort, but had no luck there. Came across this thread through the debian wiki and installed the driver, updated xorg.conf and so forth but the trackpad still doesn't seem to be working (and touchpad settings won't even show up for me in basic system menus).

    Any ideas on how I can better troubleshoot this?

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

    hello there fellow ubuntu-users!

    i wanted to install this driver onto my natty ubuntu, but it seems there are some problems.
    i compiled the driver as described in this post: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...&postcount=154 (including the libtoolize command).
    everything seemed to work fine. the only thing which was strange - there was no xorg.conf file - i had to create one (i chose http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...1&postcount=75 as a template)
    so i rebooted the system, and now the trackpad isnt working at all...
    why?

    i attached a my xorg log and the xorg conf.

    i have a macbook 4,1 with ubuntu natty narwhal

    thanks for the help

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

    Try adding
    Code:
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    to the xorg.conf section to prevent the driver from being loaded twice (see earlier posts in this thread).

    I also don't have anything about ''appletouch" in my log. Is that another competing driver?

    regarding "appletouch" - I didnt install any other driver before, I guess this is the default one? Sorry, I am not that experienced with ubuntu...
    so what else could it be?

    nik
