The x11-input-mtrack driver is needed to have a reasonably working trackpad on
the late 2011 MacBook Pro models. By default, the synaptics driver is used,
which is not able to handle multitouch and swipe gestures. Since the MacBook
trackpads no longer have a separate button, multitouch is the only possible
method to do basic things like selecting text.

The mtrack driver is a continuation of the multitouch driver, found at
https://github.com/BlueDragonX/xf86-input-mtrack It has also been packaged by a
user in the
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/tiwai/openSUSE_12.1/
repository.

Reproducible: Always
