Just bought a samsung series 7 chronos laptop today and i'm testing out the Mint 13 live usb to see if it will work before installing. ideally i am going to quit dual booting, install Mint and then run windows in a virtualbox if i absolutely need it. so far everything looks good except the touchpad (i already know that compiz grid doesn't work on cinnamon). anyway, it is an elantech touchpad and it is one giant touchpad with no separate buttons.
i actually enabled two-finger scrolling and that seems to work ok. i enabled horizontal scroll and that seems ok too.
2 major problems so far:
1. right click. the bottom right corner is supposed to be the right click. nothing happens.
2. click and drag does not work.
oh and a 3rd one that is really just icing, in windows you can kind of flick up and down to accelerate scrolling. scrolling only seems to be one speed.
are these problems fixable? i'm going to make a disk image of the windows install, but i really don't want to go through the trouble of wiping it out if mint won't be usable. lack of a right click is unusable imo... it is the first thing i tell my friends that i hate so much about macs!
thanks for any insight you can provide.
