Macbook Air 2013 Touchpad issues

I have some trouble with getting the touchpad to work on my new Macbook Air. evdev works, but then I don't get two-finger right click or scrolling (is there any way to set up this with the evdev driver I would be satisfied with that).

xinput list:

⎡ Virtual core pointer                      id=2    [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                id=4    [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Apple Inc. Apple Internal Keyboard / Trackpad id=11   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                     id=3    [master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard               id=5    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                              id=6    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus                                 id=7    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                              id=8    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Sleep Button                              id=9    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Apple Inc. Apple Internal Keyboard / Trackpad id=10   [slave  keyboard (3)]

Just trying the default synaptics or mtrack does nothing. Some trial and error shows that the touchpad is not identifying as touchpad, but as pointer.  Changing "MatchIsTouchpad" to "MatchIsPointer" seems to it match the right device, but then the pointer is frozen and doesn't move in either case. If I try "cat /dev/input/event10" and move around a bit it seems to give reasonable output, so I conclude that's my device. Trying with synaptics config:

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "synaptics touchpad catchall"
        Driver "synaptics"
        #MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        MatchIsPointer "on"
	#Option "Protocol" "psaux"
	#Option "Protocol" "event"
        Option "TapButton1" "1"
        Option "TapButton2" "2"
        Option "TapButton3" "3"
        #MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event10"
EndSection

Curiously, mouse1 identifies as touchpad (I guess this is for detecting since cat /dev/input/mouse1 seems to give the same outout no  matter where on it I touch, and clicking works so far). If I let mtrack try there too, clicking doesn't work anymore either. This is the default config from the AUR:

Re: Macbook Air 2013 Touchpad issues

Legogris - I have encountered the same issue.  It is because the touchpad is being associated with the more generic 'usbhid' kernel driver (which then causes it to associate with the generic 'evdev' X driver).  The issue is with the upstream kernel bcm5974 module -- it cannot properly communicate with the new touchpad hardware (new to the MacBook Air mid2013 laptops -- the vendor-product id of the new device is 05ac:0291).

You can see this in the sysfs by looking at the devices in the /sys/bus/usb/drivers/usbhid/ path (vs the bcm5974 driver path, which probably does not exist for you unless you manually modprobed the bcm5974 module).  Even forcing the bcm5974 module to interface to the device fails in its current form.

I have filed an upstream bug with bugzilla.kernel.org. The bug id is 60181.  It would probably help move things along if you also comment on the bug as well -- please attach the contents of the logs that you included in your post in the bug as well.  With luck, we will see a fix for the 3.10 release.



As a side note, I have also not been able to get the evdev driver to recognize anything but mouse movement and Button 1 clicks (i.e. left-click).  If you are able to get the evdev to do more than this (i.e. some form of a right click, etc) I would be interested to know it.  In the mean-time, I have had to put together a hack combination of xbindkeys and xdotool (or xdo) to invoke a right-click via a keyboard key-press combination.

Re: Macbook Air 2013 Touchpad issues

Ah, what a hassle. I made a comment with my logs. First post on kernel.org, hope I did it in the right way.

I was also thinking about doing something similarwith xbindkeys - if you wouldn't mind sharing your hack, I would be happy about that. I guess we can't do much more than keeping our fingers crossed for 3.10 then!

Re: Macbook Air 2013 Touchpad issues

To get a right-click to map to a keyboard key-combination (I used ctrl+grave .. you know the tilda thing):

Install xbindkeys and xdotool.

Create the following files:

/usr/local/bin/mouse-click

#!/bin/sh

CLICK_NUM="$1"

if [ -z "${CLICK_NUM}" ]; then
  echo "usage: mouse-click <click-code>" >&2
  exit 1
fi

# hack sleep seems to allow the click-event to be more reliable
sleep 0.25
xdotool click "${CLICK_NUM}"

/usr/local/bin/keyboard-right-click-service

#!/bin/sh

CONF_FILE="${HOME}/.config/keyboard-right-click.conf"

if [ ! -f "${HOME}/.config/keyboard-right-click.conf" ]; then
  echo "Unable to locate configuration file, creating one in ${CONF_FILE}."  
  mkdir -p "$( dirname "${CONF_FILE}" )" 2>/dev/null  
  cat > "${CONF_FILE}" << EOF
"mouse-click 3"
    m:0x4 + c:49
    Control + grave
    
"mouse-click 1"
    m:0x4 + m:0x1 + c:10
    Control + Shift + 1
    
"mouse-click 2"
    m:0x4 + m:0x1 + c:11
    Control + Shift + 2
    
"mouse-click 3"
    m:0x4 + m:0x1 + c:12
    Control + Shift + 3

"mouse-click 4"
    m:0x4 + m:0x1 + c:13
    Control + Shift + 4

"mouse-click 5"
    m:0x4 + m:0x1 + c:14
    Control + Shift + 5   

EOF
  
  if [ ! -f "${CONF_FILE}" ]; then
    echo "Unable to create the default configuration file ${CONF_FILE}."
    exit 1
  fi
fi

xbindkeys -n -f "${CONF_FILE}" &
S_PID="$!"

for i in 1 2 3; do
  if ! kill -0 "${S_PID}" 2>/dev/null; then
    echo "Sevice keyboard-right-click _xbindkeys_ stopped unexpectedly."
    exit 1
  fi
  sleep 0.1
done

echo "${S_PID}"
exit 0

Launch the /usr/local/bin/keyboard-right-click-service file on login (varies based on your DE)... or at any-time in your user session.

I use LXDE so I created the following file to auto-launch it:

${HOME}/.config/autostart/keyboard-right-click.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Type=Application
Exec=keyboard-right-click-service
Icon=mouse
Terminal=false

.. now right-click is mapped to ctrl+grave, in addition mouse buttons 1, 2, 3, 4 are invoked by ctrl+shift+<number-key>.
Not an ideal world, but might be a hold-over until the driver is updated.

Re: Macbook Air 2013 Touchpad issues

An initial patch to fix this issue has been published with the kernel bug (this is the current patch, but you should go to the bug report directly to see if any updates are made).

It is currently working with my new MBA-2013 hardware and I have not seen regressions on older hardware.

Wow, I was just reading through the process you guys went through - great work! Never compiled my own kernel under Arch before, but I guess I'll get around to it later this week. Great work!
By the way, have you experienced the stability problems I wrote briefly about here?

Re: Macbook Air 2013 Touchpad issues

Hello,

I am thinking of buying a macbook air 2013 and to install archlinux, execpt from the SATA error, WLAN and this patch, is there anything else that it doesn't work as it should be? (HDMI, temperatures, etc)... Please don't take me wrong, but was those all the issues that they exist on mba 2013 or you just stop trying from fixing things... Because in the last couple of days i was seeing a couple of replies per day, but now there is nothing... Could archlinux work on mba, like it is working in any other laptop/ultrabook or it will always be something new to be fixed?

Thank you in advance

Nothing is impossible.
The more people who work together, the faster we can get these babies working smoothly.  There are some small stuff that doesn't work out of the box that I'm sure could be configured (hotkeys, speaker output, backlight dimming, keyboard lighting) if one takes the time for it. I haven't even tried yet. The Broadcom wifi driver issue is the only thing that really bugs me out that is unsolved as far as I know.

Hey there, I'm running 3.10.10-1-ARCH as far as I can tell (uname -r) and after installing synaptics with pacman -S xf86-input-synaptics I don't see any effect after restarting X or restarting the computer.

I'm running a MacBook Air 2013 (6,1) with Awesome WM.
I see a file 50-synaptics.conf in my /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory and it looks like this:

# Example xorg.conf.d snippet that assigns the touchpad driver
# to all touchpads. See xorg.conf.d(5) for more information on
# InputClass.
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE, your distribution will likely overwrite
# it when updating. Copy (and rename) this file into
# /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d first.

        Option "TapButton2" "2"
        Option "TapButton3" "3"
# This option is recommend on all Linux systems using evdev, but cannot be
# enabled by default. See the following link for details:

        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
EndSection

        Identifier "touchpad ignore duplicates"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        MatchOS "Linux"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/mouse*"
        Option "Ignore" "on"
EndSection

        Identifier "Default clickpad buttons"
        MatchDriver "synaptics"
        Option "SoftButtonAreas" "50% 0 82% 0 0 0 0 0"
#       To disable the bottom edge area so the buttons only work as buttons,
#       not for movement, set the AreaBottomEdge
#       Option "AreaBottomEdge" "82%"
EndSection

# This option is only interpreted by clickpads.
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "Disable clickpad buttons on Apple touchpads"
        MatchProduct "Apple|bcm5974"
        MatchDriver "synaptics"
        Option "SoftButtonAreas" "0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0"
EndSection

This doesn't seem to do anything for me though... is there something else I should be doing? Running "synaptics" from the terminal does nothing, though I can execute "man synaptics" and I get a man page.

Do I have to add a line somewhere that loads the drive on the start of X?

Am I supposed to add something to 10-evdev.conf in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ ?
It looks like evdev is picking up the Trackpad...

Sorry if this seems mundane, I'm not a veteran Linux user.

Re: Macbook Air 2013 Touchpad issues

I changed my 50-synaptics.conf file to look like this:

# Example xorg.conf.d snippet that assigns the touchpad driver
# to all touchpads. See xorg.conf.d(5) for more information on
# InputClass.
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE, your distribution will likely overwrite
# it when updating. Copy (and rename) this file into
# /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d first.
# Additional options may be added in the form of
#   Option "OptionName" "value"
#
Section "Module"
        Load    "synaptics"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad catchall"
        Driver "synaptics"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        Option "TapButton1" "1"
        Option "TapButton2" "2"
        Option "TapButton3" "3"
        Option "VertTwoFingerScroll" "on"
# This option is recommend on all Linux systems using evdev, but cannot be
# enabled by default. See the following link for details:
# http://who-t.blogspot.com/2010/11/how-to-ignore-configuration-errors.html
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event11"
EndSection

# Section "InputClass"
#         Identifier "touchpad ignore duplicates"
#         MatchIsTouchpad "on"
#         MatchOS "Linux"
#         MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/mouse*"
#         Option "Ignore" "on"
# EndSection

# This option enables the bottom right corner to be a right button on
# non-synaptics clickpads.
# This option is only interpreted by clickpads.
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "Default clickpad buttons"
        MatchDriver "synaptics"
        Option "SoftButtonAreas" "50% 0 82% 0 0 0 0 0"
#       To disable the bottom edge area so the buttons only work as buttons,
#       not for movement, set the AreaBottomEdge
#       Option "AreaBottomEdge" "82%"
EndSection

# This option disables software buttons on Apple touchpads.
# This option is only interpreted by clickpads.
# Section "InputClass"
#         Identifier "Disable clickpad buttons on Apple touchpads"
#         MatchProduct "Apple|bcm5974"
#         MatchDriver "synaptics"
#         Option "SoftButtonAreas" "0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0"
# EndSection

And now I see Synaptics appearing in it:

[albert@archer ~]$ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep synaptics
[  6806.246] (II) LoadModule: "synaptics"
[  6806.246] (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/synaptics_drv.so
[  6806.246] (II) Module synaptics: vendor="X.Org Foundation"

However it doesn't look like it's getting loaded:

[albert@archer ~]$ synclient
Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded?

I've been google searching like crazy and can't find a solution anywhere. Anybody got any tips?


EDIT:

My /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf file now looks like this:

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "synaptics touchpad catchall"
    Driver "synaptics"
    MatchIsPointer "on"
    Option "TapButton1" "1"
    Option "TapButton2" "2"
    Option "TapButton3" "3"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
EndSection

And executing

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep synaptics

Reveals this:
