How to enable lower right corner touchpad as Secondary click on 2008 Macbook 4,1

In OSX, you've the option to set a physical click on the lower right corner of the touchpad to be your Secondary (right) click. I can't seem to figure out to duplicate this functionality in Elementary OS Loki.

Here's some details:

  • Macbook 5,1 (Late 2008)
  • Elementary OS 0.4 Loki
  • No physical buttons, just a single pad that can be clicked
  • The touchpad is setup for right handed use
  • Primary (left) click works fine
  • I can tap with two fingers to active the Secondary (right) click menu
  • The issue is the combination of physical click to the lower right of the touchpad registers the same as Primary (left) click.

Running xinput --list my touchpad shows up as being a bcm5974

When I run xinput --list-props bcm5974 I get the following output of options:

Device 'bcm5974':

Has anyone figure out a way to get this to work?
