Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with Apple machines.

As for your graphics, it looks like you have dual/hybrid graphics. I think you're ok, because nouveau loaded for the Nvidia.

Yup, the graphics overall are probably OK if it's loading the nouveau driver, which means it's using the nvidia card.

As far as why the intel card didn't load, I see the BIOS date from inxi is 2018. Is the machine really that new or did you do a BIOS update?

If the machine is really a 2018 model I suspect the Intel card needs a newer kernel version, at least 4.15. But if if the graphics is working for now I'd leave it for now.

The Macbook is 2013 model. Haven't updated Bios by myself. Maybe it updated on its own.
Still can anyone help me with the tap and drag setting? Couldn't find any solution online.
At least if noone had this problem can someone tell me on Mint 18.3 Cinnamon 64-bit with Cinnamon Version 3.6.7 am I running synclient or libinput? And is it safe to install libinput and change the touchpad settings from there?
