Know how your little glidestick likes to spastically click/drag on everything that it can, infuriatingly ignoring the un-selecting of "Clicking" on the trackpad preference pane?
Infuriate no more! I've built up a new version of the ApplePS2Controller.kext file that, when you disable tap, also sends the proper command sequence to disable tap on the glidestick as well. You can download it from here.
On my machine, that'll put the zip file into my downloads folder - open up a terminal window and do:
Code: Select all
sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext ~/OldPS2Controller.kext
sudo cp -R ApplePS2Controller.kext /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext
sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/*.kext
rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.mkext
rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache
kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions/
then reboot. You can now disable clicking in the trackpad preferences pane. This appears to mostly affect the click/hold/drag functionality. Even with click disabled, i can still tap on the stick to have it register a single click.
If i want to drag, with clicking disabled, I have to use the mouse buttons on the other side.
For even more fun, if you install Smart Scroll X you can enable Grab Scoll, with mouse button 3. I use that to scroll around webpages on my ux280p. It's rather nice, left thumb presses "mouse button 3" while the touchstick scrolls me around.
Next up? Seeing if i can figure out how to calibrate the touchscreen :)
ps. I'll get the code cleaned up and posted up at some point, as well as slap together a real webpage for it beyond just this forum post.
