Although man pages are essential for anyone doing serious work on Linux and other Unix-like operating systems, it’s hard to advocate for them as being user friendly and easy to read. Therefore, evangelists invent all sorts of things to spread knowledge about their favorite tools and technologies: tutorials, e-books, videos, etc. There’s even a coloring book that teaches how SELinux works. Now we have one more addition to the mix: fanzines. If you like them, this website has some very interesting and funny zines about programming, debugging and Linux in general.
Some time ago I wrote a few tips about Running Fedora 22 on a Late 2013 Macbook Pro (Retina). Fedora is now on its version 24 and remains the best Linux distribution out there and the tips are still valid.
However, there’s one new tip. Instead of dealing with the Synaptics/Synclient stuff by yourself, you may want to try using the configuration from my Copr repository instead:
dnf copr enable orpiske/synconf
dnf install -y synconf
And with that you should have a touchpad behavior that is similar to the one on OS X.
