    is there any way to set up the right click on the trackpad of a Powerbook?
    maybe tapping the top left corner or something like that?
    i hate ctrl-tap

    You can change it in system preferences to a two finger tap

    What version powerbook are you running?
    I seem to remember a program that enabled two-finger scrolling and two-finger right-click on older powerbooks (that didn't come with two finger scrolling).

    Edit: It's called iScroll (http://iscroll2.sourceforge.net/)

    Edit2: Look into SideTrack, I think it's what you need

    it's the last version of Powerbook that came out actually, it's got two finger scrolling and i can't set the right click to a two finger tap from System Preferences.

    side track looks like what i need but i'm not ready to pay for a feature like this :)

    is there any other way to do this?

    I am using sidetrack and i really love it. I think it is well worth US $ 15.

    You can use Sidetrack without paying. It just displays a little message when your start-up the computer. But there's no two-fingered taps on any pre-intel Apple-laptop, FYI. Excluding the ones that iScroll works on, but that doesn't include yours (or mine :eek: ). Sidetrack gives you a 1-fingered right-click, which, frankly, can be annoying sometimes. And it disables the two-fingered scroll.

    well, if it disables the two finger scroll i don't want it,
    the two finger scroll rocks imho.
    so that's it, no other way to do this?

    Nope, not for now. It's not actually a technical issue, from what I hear. Rather that Apple has a patent on this technology and no one wants to risk getting sued.
