    Does anybody know if there is, or is anyway to create some kind of spaces trackpad gesture? I hate having to push FN+F5 to look at spaces. I wish I could just push one button (like just f5) or use some kind of trackpad gesture.

    MultiClutch could help if you have a three finger enabled touchpad.

    1. Install MultiClutch

    2. Open MultiClutch (System Preferences)

    3. Global

    4. Add a gesture or use the existing one and change it to one you like.

    5. Assign a keyboard short cut to it.

    6. Go to Keyboard & Mouse (System Preferences)

    7. Keyboard Shortcuts

    8. Dock, Exposé and Dashboard shortcuts

    9. Select Spaces and assign the keyboard shortcut you used earlier.


    Btw, I have assigned it to a three finger swipe up.

    And MutliClutch will also not work with some applications like Finder or iTunes, but Safari, SysPrefs, .... work okay.

    Hey thats great and works as long as I'm in the space #1 but when I swipe up and go to Space #2 and then swipe up nothing happens. For some reason I can only get it to work in the first space. Are you having the same issue?

    I'm not sure of any way to do what you're describing but I just have spaces assigned to my bottom left hot corner if that helps.

    ^That's also a possibility. I have that too.

    To warning9: It doesn't work in the second Space, because there is some program which is not supported by MultiClutch, like Finder.

    From http://wcrawford.org/2008/02/28/everytime-i-think-about-you-i-touch-my-cell/:

    You can ‘bind’ gestures in a given Cocoa app (due to the nature of input managers, Carbon apps are not supported) or globally.
