    Re: MacBookAir4,1 & MacBookAir4,2 (MBA 2011) support

    Perhaps somebody knows this or I didn't catch it on this thread.

    Is there a way to fix the "Right-Click" with this trackpad..?

    I am a little unsure, what the exact behavior of the tractpad is after the fix
    (my mba has been a special case, so far...)

    Normally on the mac, you hold Cntr + trackpad click, but this yields nothing.

    What I have found that works, depending on where the pointer is located, either the F12
    Or Command + F12

    Anyone know of a quickie fix, to make the behavior standard, in some fashion or form or is this the best I should hope for without expending dozens of man-hours?
    (Maybe I can alias it in my inputrc?)


    Thanks

    @ChinaSailor: for the right click, just click with two fingers. For the middle (3rd button) click, click with 3 fingers.

    That depends on what changes you've made. By default, Ubuntu uses a three finger tap for the incredibly useful window-dragging and resizing facility. And, if you haven't already discovered it, a four finger sideways swipe hides or reveals the Unity launcher.

    Hello,

    Thanks for all this great work, and congratulations Joshua on graduating.

    I have a mba4,1 and its mostly working. The display works at full resolution after I move the i915.ko to the drm folder manually, but this might be because I did not always delete the mba-tmp folder and had an older fix915.sh.

    Right now bluetooth, keyboard backlight, multitouch and the FN keys are not working.

    I am not running 64-bit since I only have 4GB of ram but the mtrack .deb packages linked here are all 64-bit.

    I attached the lsusb, lspci and lshw outputs.

    My MBA is obviously an 11" i7, US Keyboard

    Hope this helps the effort.

    David

    All of the drivers for the hardware you listed is built from source in post-install-oneiric.sh. This means there should be no issues of whether its 32 or 64. Since other MBA41 people have it working, you must be doing something different? Use the latest version of post-install-oneiric.sh (which will automatically download and run fix-i915.sh if needed or local copy is older).

    I didn't look at your hardware dumps but there is nothing that I need to know. The device id's have already been determined.

    @poliva - Indeed the two fingers do work, although a bit tricky.

    Is anyone running 11.04..? Obviously there is a working script for that too, but I am just curious as to how that runs vs the 11.10 (on this MBA)..?

    I know that the 11.04 is running the 2.6.38-11 and the 11.10 has the 3.0.0-11, I wonder are there any real advantages to running the 11.10..?
    I.E... Like increased native architect chip support or mac device stuff? I am constantly getting those gnome pop-up errors.
    So if there are no real disadvantages, esp concerning the "post-install" scripts, I will probably re-install the 11.04.

    thanks

    Its best to run 11.10 for too many reasons to list.

    I'm so sick of gnome-3/unity bashing I could vomit. Its linux. Install whatever window manager you want! The ubuntu version doesn't force you to use anything. You could probably run the solaris window manager if you wanted.

    Honestly, there is absolutely no reason for anyone to complain. Everything you want is in the repos. And Im sure there are five-gazillion howtos too.

    I, for one, love Unity. And Gnome 3 is brilliant, too.

    Once you've adapted to either and learned a few keyboard shortcuts and touchpad gestures, the primary roles of a desktop shell - window management and program launching - need significantly fewer or less precise muscle movements than under Gnome 2, Windows 7 / XP or OS X. As I see it, the only real disadvantage is that it's harder to discover installed software than with the older menu system.

    And, if you want a modern desktop shell, 11.10 is the way to go rather than 11.04. 11.10 is much more polished and has dealt with many of the worst usability flaws from 11.04.

    I'm not going back.
