    I did the stupid thing and installed ubuntu on my MacBook. Now the trackpad doesn't work in it, so I want to delete it. OSX seems to be incapable of removing the linux partition and linux swap. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I did the same and i had to reformat xD but i knew it was going to happen because its not fat 32 or ntfs, so its not going to let you get it off through boot camp manager. which is the only way to get rid of it without formatting your hdd. So id assume thats your main option unless if theres programs that will do it, which im sure there is i suppose.

    If I make it free space or NTFS/FAT32 from the live CD, you think that'll work?

    Yes that will work. That is exactly how I removed my Ubuntu partition after I decided I had no real use for it. I think I just deleted the Linux partition in the partition utility on the CD which made the area into unused free space. After that I went into Disk Utility and expanded my OS X partition to use the free space.
