For those using pbbuttonsd, it can easily set notap using a line in
/etc/pbbuttonsd.conf -- the Debian packaged config file has it under
a section called [MODULE PMAC]:
TPMode = notap
This makes the trackpad operate much more like most of us are used to.
Regarding the trackpad being too sensitive, I was able to make my
trackpad mostly usable using the mouse settings in KDE.
I couldn't tell what desktop environment the original two posters in
this thread are using, but maybe someone can point to a setting or a
utility in KDE or GNOME that is more appropriate to the needs of a
trackpad user (instead of a mouse user).
For me using KDE, I find there are only "least bad" settings for my
trackpad rather than being able to set ideal ones.
