I have been playing around with using Linux Mint on an older Mac Book (2009 era). Linux Mint runs great on this laptop as compared to OS X.
The only major problem I am having is with the trackpad. It is really hard to use. For example if I hold my left pointer finger in the bottom left corner of the trackpad and try and move the mouse with my right pointer finger it will not move until remove my left finger.
The two finger scrolling works, but it is very very fast. The slightest movement puts it to the bottom of the screen.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to setup the trackpad properly? I have tried xserver.xorg.input.mtrack but it wanted to remove a ton of xserver applications. I tried it anyways and xserver would not start back up on reboot, had to reinstall.
