    HI everyone,
    I am having some strange issues after upgrading to lion. I double tap ( not click) to launch Mission control and it does nothing. I can use my trackpad on my laptop just fine.

    I have read on apple forums to delete the mouse plist file.. that did not work either.

    anyone else with this issue that might have resolved it ?

    Have you tried Mouse in System Preferences? Under the More Gestures tab make sure Mission Control is checked.

    Another thing is that I know on my Magic Mouse that gesture can be a little finicky.

    yeah I checked that and I have it checked. I even unchecked it, shutdown, restart, check it again, and then par the mouse.

    nothing... I can double tap in safari and it does do the zoom so I know the mouse works ( somewhat)

    yes, Double tap and not double click. what is weird is if I am in Safari I can do the double tap with one finger and it zooms in. but double tap with two fingers does not seem to register with the mouse.
