Anyone know of a PPC version of this application, one that supports Leopard 10.5.8?
There's a version of MagicPrefs that works with the MagicMouse. It installs as a PrefPane in System Preferences and an app. However, I've had absolutely zero luck with it. It installs and lets you manipulate the preferences. But no mouse gestures beyond the standard OS provided set are ever recognized.
I tried looking up BetterTouchTool's version history. Sometimes you can get lucky with old betas, but even a version they had at 0.5 or so was still Snow Leopard only.
Sorry, but I think you are out of luck on this one.
Thanks Erik, that's kinda what I thought.
I'm trying a Wacom BambooPad, and the default install is pretty usable as is.
2-finger scrolling, touch to left-click and 2-finger touch to right-click, all this without any driver support from Wacom.
I just wanted to see what BTT could maybe add to the mix.
There used to be an app called iScroll that would enable 2-finger scroll on older powerbook track pads.
Thanks but as I mentioned in my post above, I already have 2-finger scrolling.
What does the tool do? Always looking for better mouse drivers than iScroll provides on early PBG4s and G3s.
Nothing, that is until we can find a PPC version.
For Intel Macs it provides more mouse/trackpad gestures.
I stress the phrase "For Intel Macs."
Ah... Oh well.
So this, from what I gather, is meant for pre-unibody nonmulti-touch trackpads? Like on a cMB for example, or an early MBP.
I found this:
It looks like it was updated from the version I remember, but the page doesn't say anything about external pads. But like you said, the pad seems to work without any drivers.
iScroll 2 is more for trackpads on older Aluminum PowerBooks that do not have the newer trackpad gestures. As such it's a kext that loads during boot. I use it on my 1.0Ghz PowerBook.
But those gestures only apply to the internal trackpad. They'd have no effect on jbarley's MDD.
Well, the current version of BetterTouchTool calls for 10.8 as a minimum I believe. So, take that as you will.
I use it to bring 3 finger tap Look Up to the Magic Mouse, as well as to change the behavior of the green button, on my Yosemite riMac. It's a useful app with support for many gestures.
10.7, according to the download page. Too bad there isn't a version for PPC.
Thanks for that!
