    I have an ibook g4 14" since 2003.
    It always worked perfectly until now.
    The trackpad is completely disabled.
    I can not install, use an external mouse, or use the mouse track from the mac.
    I found out what the problem is, then trying with the keyboard, I use ctl & O (open) and I got to the preferences.
    then I type trackpad sensitivity, and it opens.
    In the trackpad says trackpad gestures: and the Clicking is unchecked, what keys from the keyboard can I use to check that box?
    and in the trackpack options:
    the Ignore accidental trackpad input is checked
    Ignore trackpad when mouse is present is un checked.
    I know that there is the problem, the mouse is completely disabled. help please...

    You hit the Tab to go through all the lists and then you click the Space Bar to check/uncheck the appropriate boxes.

    Hopefully this wasn't too late :(

    Trackpad Gestures: Clicking

    If I use tab and then spacebar, it will go back to the previous and I can do nothing..
    The problem is that when I am on the keyboard & Mouse preferences, I type trackpad then it opens but once opened, I can not do anything inside the window like click on the trackpad gestures I have to click on clicking in order to use the mouse...
    what is the key to get from the searching (trackpad) to the clicking...
    please tell me...
