[macbook] various problems, touchpad, skype, etc

Hi folks!
I'm sorry for my bad enlish but i'm italian

I've just installed debian sid on my this one that cost 1250 and it has a intel core2 duo at 2.16Ghz. Is the last macbook series I think.

I've some problems:
1) right click with the touchpad doesn't work in spite of I've modified xorg.conf like debian mackbook wiki and some others sample found with google. The only thing works is the 2fingers scroll.

2) some days ago the italian repository was down so I edited sources.list and I added the american repo ( but now nearly the whole system is in english!

3) the remote control doesn't work. I don't know what to do, i can't understand debian wiki
(for touchpad and remote control should I install mactel?)

4) I've installed debian 64bit version and some programs like skype are only 32 bit.

some help?

thanks everybody!
