    On my workstation i prefer using my MX Revolution mouse but i still want too use the Magic Trackpad at the same time for more gesture controls, the thing is, i still think regular scrolling for mousewheels still feels best, but for trackpads i want natural scrolling.

    There doestn seem to be a way in OS X to just change to natural scrolling for the trackpad and keep the regular scrolling on the mouse, i downloaded MagicPrefs but it doesnt seem to have a setting for that either.

    So yeah, is there a way to fix this?

    You should be able to use the Logitech software that came with your MX Revolution to invert the scrolling direction. That way, when you turn on natural scrolling with your trackpad, you get normal direction with the mouse.

    I ended up just getting used to it instead, though.

    I know this is an old post, but my software engineering firm used this as a first project because I was also annoyed by this setting.
    The final product is called Squirrelly because I felt the natural scroll direction that Apple used felt a little "squirrelly". Our app is a light weight, efficient status bar app that works great. You can download it quickly and easily from our website at for $1.29 USD.
