    Hello,
    since I installed 10.4.11 on my PB there is no option for two finger clicking. Does anyone know why?

    I was about to ask if it was there before 10.4.11. From what I remembered of the powerbooks is that we could not. It would have to be a "ctrl" click.

    I have two finger clicking on my 800 MHz iBook G3 running 10.4.10.

    Though I have forgotten how I enabled it...

    Are we taking two finger clicking or scrolling. Google search for "Clicking" only brings up forums results such as this one. Scrolling on the other hand is possible and there is even a niffy little driver to help with it.

    Actually, now that I think about it, I used a shareware program called SideTrack IIRC.

    Two finger clicking will work in addition to scrolling in Leopard. There is no option for a two finger click in Tiger, but there is one in Leopard.


    Of course, third party software can provide for these shortcomings in Tiger.

    Thats right,
    I had it in Leo, but went back due to performance problems.
    I will have to search for third party apps than. Thanks for the hint!

    Ok that makes sense. I never had Leopard on my powerbook, which would be why I never remembered 2 finger clicking.
