    I had BetterTouchTool installed on SL, and when I moved to Lion it started messing gestures up so I've learned to live without it. Now I've lost three-finger navigation gestures after every reboot, I have to start BTT and then quit it to get my three-finger gestures back. I use four fingers for desktops and Mission Control and 3 fingers for navigation. I don't want BTT anymore but I have to keep it because of that stupid bug, and if I drop it in the trash then I have NO WAY to restore three-finger gestures. Does anyone know how to get to the bottom of this so I can undo whatever it is BTT did and get my three finger navigation gestures back?..

    Guess you need to get appzapper and hunt down btt and uninstall it?

    I've tried that - didn't work. I don't know WTF BTT is doing TBH.

    In most cases, app removal software like AppZapper doesn't do a thorough job of deleting files/folders related to deleted apps. For more information, read this.

    The most effective method for complete app removal is manual deletion:

    Try and disable Three finger drag. It's either Three finger drag or Swipe with two or three fingers. Not both.
