NAMEatp - Apple touchpad driver
SYNOPSISTo compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines into your kernel configuration file:
device atp device usb
Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf5:
DESCRIPTIONThe sysctl Cm net.inet.tcp.syncookies driver provides support for the Apple Internal Trackpad device found in many Apple laptops. Older (Fountain/Geyser) and the newer (Wellspring) trackpad families are all supported through a unified driver.
The driver simulates a three-button mouse using multi-finger tap detection. Single finger tap generates a left-button click; two-finger tap maps to the middle button; whereas a three-finger tap gets treated as a right button click.
There is support for 2-finger horizontal scrolling, which translates to page-back/forward events; vertical multi-finger scrolling emulates the mouse wheel.
A double-tap followed by a drag is treated as a selection gesture; a virtual left-button click is assumed for the lifespan of the drag.
sysctl Cm net.inet.tcp.syncookies supports dynamic reconfiguration using sysctl(8); through nodes under hw.usb.atp Pointer sensitivity can be controlled using the sysctl tunable hw.usb.atp.scale_factor Smaller values of Fa scale_factor result in faster movement. A simple high-pass filter is used to reduce contributions from small movements; the threshold for this filter may be controlled by hw.usb.atp.small_movement The maximum tolerable duration of a touch gesture is controlled by hw.usb.atp.touch_timeout (in microseconds); beyond this period, touches are considered to be slides. (This conversion also happens when a finger stroke accumulates at least hw.usb.atp.slide_min_movement movement (in mickeys). The maximum time (in microseconds) to allow an association between a double- tap and drag gesture may be controlled by hw.usb.atp.double_tap_threshold Should one want to disable tap detection and rely only upon physical button presses, set the following sysctl to a value of 2 hw.usb.atp.tap_minimum
