    I just installed Lion and I really like it. however, I think I have a few problems.

    For some reason Launch Pad shows apps that I uninstalled a few weeks ago(TF2 and CS:S)
    Secondly, I can seem to understand the swiping left and right with three fingers, does it replace spaces? If so how do I set it up? I try to open new apps but they are just opening in the same space.

    Thanks

    I feel your pain with spaces. Is there any way to enable multiple desktops in Lion?

    I can line up a bunch of full screen apps side by side but can't make multiple desktops with multiple windows :(

    Go to the System Preferences and then Mission Control as well as the Mouse System Preference. Play around there until you find a setting that works for you.

    Thanks, I figured out my first problem, Steam saved the apps to a different place.
    With the 2nd, I can't really see many apps with full screen feature (just chrome and safari atm)
    I hope Chrome update to make us of the smooth zooming and 2 fingers back and fourth.

    I'm trying to figure out how to set up spaces too. I'm not seeing anything that I can take advantage of the three finger swiping left and right.

    Edit: I used to use three finger swipe left and right as back and forward buttons in my browser. Currently it isn't working. I even set the "spaces" switching to four finger swiping.

    Apparently it only works with full screen apps, but so far I can only see 2 full screen apps (Safari and Chrome)

    How about the three finger swipe to go back and forward on the browser?

    Uh no? You can change the "swipe between pages" to "three fingers" and it'll work on chrome absolutely fine

    I personally would rather swipe between tabs than swipe back and forward in history. If I am on a page, say Mac OS X 10.7 Lion threads at MR, and I want to see a thread, I open it in a new tab. That way when I'm done looking at it and want to go back to the thread list, I just close that tab. Never been a big fan of back and forward buttons in browsers. You have to wait for the page to reload. Unless Safari caches the pages so that isn't an issue.
