    So recently I have noticed that my three finger swipe and rotating gestures are not working. I have checked the preference pane and they are turned on. Is there some other setting that I am missing?

    Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Preview, iTunes, also the three finger scroll to the bottom of the page doesn't work. I will look at permissions now.

    Let the repairs finish, and then reboot and see if it still doesn't work. :)

    Just rebooted and everything works. Thanks for the help guys. Do you know why this happened?

    I doubt it was a permissions issue because other members have complained at certain gestures not working until they restart their MacBooks.

    Next time, try Logging out and see if that fixes it.

    I think this is a bug in 10.6.2. I had the 3 and 4 finger gestures stop working after every other reboot. The fix was creating another account and logging into it once, I think. I haven't had it happen again since I did that.
