    So I'm using Lion on my main comp (iMac). My Macbook Air 2010 running the latest Snow Leopard is blankly sitting there normally, but whenever I use it, I scroll UP expecting the page to scroll DOWN like in Lion (backwards scrolling). I guess I've gotten used to it in my iMac, so.. is there any terminal command or plist file that I can edit to change Snow Leopard to make it scroll backwards? Thanks, guyzzz.

    Not sure if there's a first-party way to do it, but BetterTouchTool can do it.

    There are a few apps for which it doesn't always work, however.

    Thanks guys! I guess I'll need to work on my googling skills since I've been searching for almost 10 minutes to no avail when I checked this and bam! Again, thanks celticpride678, Ashka, and kuwisdelu!
