    ok so all of a sudden the swipe to navigate does not work on my macbook pro.. i looked in prefrences and it is checked to be on.. the only thing that i think might conflict it would be jItouch but even with that off it dosent work... i do have a bamboo tablet hoocked up as well as the apple full keyboard... but these have never caused any kind of conflict b4...
    has anyone else had this problem?

    You may be experiencing the multitouch bug in 10.6.2. Rebooting usually makes it work again, but not permanently. Creating a new user account, logging into that once, and going back into your normal account may be a better temporary fix, but the problem came back for me. Resetting the PRAM might also fix it; I can't remember if I ever tried that.

    I sure hope creating a second account actually does something, because I have been recommending that a lot! I found the suggestion on the Apple forums.


    Apple really needs to fix this in 10.6.3.
