    Are you 100% sure that your Powerbook G4 does not support trackpad scrolling?

    There were two different 15" 1.5ghz Powerbook G4 models. One of them supported bluetooth 1.0, and the other model supports bluetooth 2.0. The bluetooth 1.0 does not support trackpad scrolling...the bluetooth 2.0 DOES support trackpad scrolling.

    HTH,

    Here is an article and app. called "iScroll2" which sounds like it's supposed to enable 2-finger scrolling on some older "non-supported" models:

    Two-Finger Scrolling for Pre-2005 PowerBooks and iBooks — Apple News, Tips and Reviews
    iScroll2: Two-Finger-Scrolling for pre-2005 PowerBooks and iBooks

    ...I have not tried it...so please let us know if it works.

    Thanks,
