Hello, I’m having the exactly same problem as our friend @ThiagoTnt in the following link:
Any movement (literally any movement) you try in the touchpad is translated as an inverted Y axis cursor movement, at the same time, inverted scroll. Clicking and moving goes a little bit to the right.
I had to use
xinput disable 11 so I could click with the usb mouse, otherwise its click wouldn’t work.
I’ve seen people with similar problems in a few others distros, they solved using synaptics or mtrack driver, but as we can’t install any drivers into Endless, I just couldn’t. I downloaded GCC and gnome.Sdk mode, tried to compile xf86-input-mtrack driver from Debian, but it won’t find Xorg package while in Sandbox mode.
It would be very interesting if Endless had a root mode where you could have some real permissions, probably I could solve the problem and posted here the resolution. This read-only limitation is very good for end users which will use the computer, but for me, as a linux heavy user, configuring and trying to introduce the first linux distro to a friend of mine which has this Macbook, it turned into something very hard to get done…
I just thought in the end of the day: “Wow… everything could be resolved with just a sudo apt install. If I could only test this, and see it working, it would help other people to with the same problem and at the same time help the OS dev team with this specific bug.”
The output from eos-diagnostics tool is attached as asked.
