    Two Finger Scrolling with an iBook
    Someone has found a hack to activate two-finger scrolling on supported pre-2005 PowerBooks and iBooks (i.e. those with a "W-Enhanced" trackpad, including most AlBooks and recent iBooks) on OS X 10.3

    It's in this web site:
    http://www-users.kawo2.rwth-aachen.de/~razzfazz/

    And it works!!!, I'm using it right now in my "iBook early 2004"!!

    Use the little script http://www-users.kawo2.rwth-aachen.d...ed.command.zip , Just unpack and double-click in Finder.

    Although it is rather desireable I will never download anything onto my computer that someone had to hack to get it..

    this works very well. for one , of course, you can scroll and for the second thing if you accidentaly have 2 fingers on the trackpad the pointed does go psycho on you
    ill give it an A+

    Guess my iBook is too old i have a G4 1Ghz but when I try to load it says it's not compatible with my i Book. Oh well I still have Sidetrack which I still think works great

    hmm, i dl'ed and installed it, rebooted....... i cant quite get it to work.

    it'll work randomly when i'm really trying, but i cant really control it when it randomly works.

    when i place two fingers on the touchpad and move them up/down or side-to-side or circular, the cursor moves, it doesnt scroll.

    any help?

    worked fine for me, but if u don't put ure fingers down at the exact same time on firefox it starts jumping pages. also when i did the permanent install the circular didn't work, but i didn't care much for it anyways

    It will work on yours, but because you have sidetrack installed, it reports back that it won't.

    You need to deinstall sidetrack completely using the sidetrack's deinstall tool and then try it again...

    It'll work.

    To de-install it just replace the modified AppleADBMouse.kext file with the original file.
