    Can you set the trackpad up where there is like a line in the middle and the left side is the left click and the right side is the right click, like in settings etc? Or is there any 3rd party software for this?

    Example:

    This is the trackpad
    [ ]

    [Left Click|Right Click]
    So if I click on the left side I get a left click, if I click on the right side i get a right click

    You can set a right click area in the bottom left or right corner of the track pad, but I don't believe you can set it to do what you want with splitting up entire sides of it

    it can do a whole lot of gestures
    but as the site warns:
    "Use at your own risk"... but a lot of macrumor members use it soo try it out :)
