I can´t get more "mouse buttons" on my Macbook + touchpad questions

Hello there!

I just registered here after running Manjaro with XFCE for a week or so.

I´m trying to get more mouse buttons or get the touchpad to work similar as it worked in OsX.
I´ve searched for answers but haven´t really found anything that I can understand since I´m pretty newbish to Linux in general smile

This guide doesnt help me since I dont understand how to translate it to pacman from of apt.

Can you help me or pass me to guides that fits a newbie like me and Manjaro XFCE?

Thanks

I'm not that familiar with Manjaro but I would search it's repos before I tried to build it.

pamac search mtrack

There is likely something in the Arch Wiki as well

Edit: I found this:

Ah thanks, I found something similar:

"xf86-input-mtrack-git  0.5.1.r1.g247a824-1                                                                            AUR
    A multitouch X driver using the kernel MT protocol
xf86-input-mtrack  0.5.1-2                                                                                            AUR
    An Xorg driver for multitouch trackpads and clickpads"

But I dont know which one to install and should I uninstall the default ones first?

BTW, why does the XFCE mouse document tell me to use "xinput" which my Manjaro install doesnt seem to have?

I have to reiterate here, I would stick with the default repos that come with Manjaro. The AUR repo is the Arch User Repo. Built be the community. No guarantees it will work.
