Better Trackpad driver for linxu on Macbook?
 
I have really enjoyed running Linux on my Apple MacBook. The only qualm is that the trackpad is not sensitive enough.

I am using the generic trackpad driver that came with Ubuntu 10.04. Does anyone know of a more advanced trackpad driver for Ubuntu for MacBook hardware?

Thanks.

Ubuntu 10.04, 32 bit
Kernel Linux 2.6.32-30

Is it a Synaptics pad? If so, the driver that comes with Ubuntu should have every option you need for sensitivity, tapping and scrolling. There are many wiki articles around to tell you how to configure it.

If you want the fancy multitouch gestures, you can check out this project, it isn't very advanced yet, but has some of the features that are in OSX.
