    I was wondering if anyone could post the default Magic Mouse preferences/gestures in Lion?

    Thanks in advance.

    Darn, no easy way to switch desktops unless using a trackpad or better touch tool I guess.

    That would be the two finger swipe to navigate :p

    Two works just as well unless you are over a two-finger enabled field ;)

    Mutli Touch Gestures LION

    Hey Guys,

    I am a bit miffed that it's kinda all changing on this front - I LOVE using 3finger swipe in Safari to navigate back and forward through visited pages...will this change to 2finger? - and if so what if you have a wide scrollable webpage that 2finger swipe will want to scroll horixontally wont it?

    also can anyone explain to be if spaces and exposé will still exist or if mission control kinda replaces exposé etc?

    I love the way they are joining up the way the iphone/ipad/mbp 'feel' to use, but I kinda like my mac to work like a mac and my touchy feely apple products to work thus! Things like 2finger 'swipe up' to scroll DOWN on safari will be really confusing on a desktop or laptop but just seem to make sense on a touch device... i guess its just what im used to (and i know its all customisable) but just wondered if anyone could shed any light...?

    PS. sounds silly but what will happen to the media buttons on the F keys if exposé dahsboard are different, will these eventually get updated gfx?

    I agree, I'm very worried about why they changed 3-finger swipe to 2-finger swipe. 2 fingers are for scrolling, 3 fingers should be for navigating, and 4 for switching Spaces. I don't know why there's a need to fit 2 functions into one gesture!

    As for the media buttons on the F keys, I don't think they need change. The Exposé button will trigger Mission Control, and the Dashboard button will trigger... Dashboard, yes! Everything else is the same.

    You guys are mixing up the magic mouse gestures with the trackpad gestures. Both of have different gestures with different amount of fingers. The gestures posted in this thread are for the magic mouse.

    I know, but apparently navigation with the trackpad in Safari is also now with 2 fingers, is that true?

    How to restore Magic Mouse Driver on Lion?

    Hi guys,

    Since i installed Lion, i switched to Magic Mouse but not working properly.
    Previously I've been using Mighty Mouse with Steer Mouse Driver.
    Even though I uninstalled Steer Mouse Pref, I still can not see proper Magic Mouse control pref.

    How to restore Magic Mouse Driver on Lion?

    Thanks in advance!

    magic mouse not recognised in lion: No gestures available

    Hi . I see a similar post above. I have lost ALL of my gestures on my mighty mouse as LION only recognises my mouse with a generic wireless mouse driver. I have tried unpairing, resets etc. but no joy. How do I get this sorted ?

    Do you mean magic mouse? The might mouse doesn't support gestures does it?
