    Hi folks,

    Posting on behalf of my buddy who travels alot.

    His Macbook has Leopard 10.5.8.

    He can't seem to use 2 fingers to swipe like he did before while browsing. He's not sure why.

    In Sys Prefs under trackpad, the options for 2 fingers don't even have checkmark options.

    I've attached a screenshot.

    Any advice would help. He's thinking of upgrading to Lion or SL once he has the chance.

    Cheers,
    Keebler

    Does it also happen in another, even temporarily created, user account?
