I got a an old MacBook Pro (late 2011) at work and put Fedora with i3. Everything's working great except, today I realized I can't right click (in Gnome3 I was right clicking by clicking on the trackpad with two fingers. I tried some examples I found on this and another forum about adding bindsym entries to my i3/config file, but nothing has worked yet.

As far as I can tell, tapping the trackpad does not result in a "button1" input, like in the examples, since I cannot even get simple bindsym entries to work.

Does anybody have experience with MacBook Pro trackpad input that could give me some advice?

I really suggest you ask this in a place that's not only more suitable (since it's not an i3 question), but also a bit "busier", i.e., has more active people.

If any body is curious I was able to enable two touch right click and simulate right mouse button in the lower right section of the click pad. This is what my /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf looks like:

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "touchpad"
Driver "synaptics"
MatchIsTouchpad "on"
Option "ClickPad" "true"
Option "EmulateMidButtonTime" "0"
Option "SoftButtonAreas" "50% 0 82% 0 0 0 0 0"
Option "TapButton2" "3"
EndSection
