NAME
uatp -- USB Apple trackpad driver
SYNOPSIS
uatp* at uhidev? reportid ? wsmouse* at uatp? mux 0
DESCRIPTION
The uatp driver provides support for the USB trackpads found in Apple laptops since 2005, exposed through wsmouse(4). Some USB Apple trackpads are standard USB HID mice supported by ums(4), but uatp supports more features. The following sysctl(8) variables control behavior of USB Apple trackpads: hw.uatpN.two_finger_buttons Bit mask of buttons to emulate when two fingers are on the trackpad while the button is pressed. hw.uatpN.three_finger_buttons Bit mask of buttons to emulate when three fingers are on the trackpad while the button is pressed. hw.uatpN.multifinger_track What to do when multiple fingers are moved on the trackpad. If set to 0, ignore the input. If set to 1, move as if a single finger were at the mean position of the fingers. If set to 2, scroll. Note that scrolling is cur- rently broken. hw.uatpN.x_sensors Number of sensor columns detecting the x positions of fingers on the track- pad. The driver should detect this based on the model of hardware, so you should not have to set this, and like- wise for the x ratio and y sensors and ratio. hw.uatpN.x_ratio Ratio of the number of sensor columns in the trackpad to the number of dis- tinct cursor x positions. hw.uatpN.y_sensors Number of sensor rows detecting the y positions of fingers on the trackpad. hw.uatpN.y_ratio Ratio of the number of sensor rows in the trackpad to the number of distinct cursor y positions. hw.uatpN.sensor_threshold Nonnegative integer giving a lower bound on the ``pressure'' a sensor must report for the driver to recog- nize input from it. hw.uatpN.sensor_normalizer Nonnegative integer to subtract from the ``pressure'' reported by a sensor when averaging them to estimate the pressure of a single finger. hw.uatpN.palm_width If zero, palm detection is disabled. Otherwise, a positive integer giving the number of consecutive sensors wide or high that will be interpreted as a palm instead of a finger and therefore ignored. hw.uatpN.old_raw_weight hw.uatpN.old_smoothed_weight hw.uatpN.new_raw_weight When a finger moves on the trackpad, the new smoothed (cursor) position is computed as a positive linear combina- tion of the old raw (trackpad) posi- tion, the old smoothed position, and the new raw position. The weights of the linear combination are given by these sysctl knobs. hw.uatpN.motion_threshold Threshold below which a difference in smoothed position will not be reported as an input event to userland. hw.uatpN.motion_multiplier Positive integer by which a difference in smoothed position will be multi- plied before passing it as an input event to userland. hw.uatpN.motion_divisor Positive integer by which a difference in smoothed position will be divided, after multiplying it by the motion multiplier, before passing it as an input event to userland. hw.uatpN.fast_motion_threshold Threshold above which to use the fast motion factors below. hw.uatpN.fast_motion_multiplier Positive integer by which to multiply a large difference in smoothed posi- tion. hw.uatpN.fast_motion_divisor Positive integer by which to divide a large difference in smoothed position, after multiplying it by the fast motion multiplier. hw.uatpN.motion_delay Number of input packets before uatp reports motion to userland. hw.uatpN.tap_limit_msec Positive integer giving the number of milliseconds of a finger's contact with the trackpad before it will not be considered a tap. hw.uatpN.double_tap_limit_msec Positive integer giving the maximum number of milliseconds after a tap before a second tap will keep the but- ton down. hw.uatpN.one_finger_tap_buttons Bit mask of buttons that a one-finger tap will press. hw.uatpN.two_finger_tap_buttons Bit mask of buttons that a two-finger tap will press. hw.uatpN.three_finger_tap_buttons Bit mask of buttons that a three-fin- ger tap will press. hw.uatpN.tap_track_distance_limit Maximum distance in smoothed position that will be interpreted as a tap instead of motion.

HISTORY
The uatp driver first appeared in NetBSD 7.0.
AUTHORS
The uatp driver was originally written by Taylor R. Campbell <riastradh@NetBSD.org>.
BUGS
Sometimes, particularly when X starts up, the driver gets wedged in an interrupt storm and does not reset the device. Setting hw.uatpN.sensor_threshold to a large number, say 1000, and then back to its original value, can fix this. Palm detection is not very robust. Multi-touch scrolling is currently broken. Pinch-to-zoom and other fancy multi-touch input is not implemented. On suspending and resuming, uatp detaches and reattaches, and loses all sysctl settings in the process. Do not submerge your uatp devices in water: USB adenosine triphosphate is unstable in water, and will hydrolyze to USB adenosine diphosphate and phosphate, which is a lower energy state that makes your mouse narcolep- tic in X.
