Macbook 5,1 Trackpad

Postby likespie » Tue Feb 16, 2010 11:54 am

I'm a new Linux Mint user, and new to Linux in general. I've finished installing Helena with the x64 kernel on my macbook, and I find the trackpad is very touchy when dealing with the 'tap to click', but without it, I don't have a convenient way of right clicking. So, my question is, is there a way to disable dragging windows by tapping the trackpad, or disabling the primary click while still being able to secondary click?

Any input is appreciated. Thank you.

Do you have a touchpad tab in mouse settings, can you change tap-to-click there? If so and it's not giving enough control, install gpointing-device-settings via synaptic. If not is your touchpad only recognized as a mouse?
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

The setting is there, I just liked the tap to click for the secondary click only, but I've went ahead and disabled it.
