    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
    and
    Ignore trackpad when mouse is present is un checked.
    I know that there is the problem, the mouse is completely disabled. help please...
    thanks:mad:

    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...
