    Right Clicking on an iBook
    Hiya guys, hope someone can help.

    My friend has just bought an iBook and can't figure out how to right click. I can't help because i've got a macbook (first mac i've owned) and only ever known the two-finger on pad way. Can some help please?

    Might I suggest you and your friend read Switchers 101, Mac 101, and mac shortcuts.

    There's an app that I got for right clicking on the iBook models that didn't have the two finger click. Sidetrack is a $15 paid app which has lots of features. But there's another app, which is more like a trackpad driver which enables two finger scrolling and two finger clicks and such. I just forgot the name... will post it here soon.

    Had iscroll on a 12" PB, it didn't run right at all. Scrolling was way to touchy, and more of a pain than anything no matter what the setting. It also couldn't scroll horizontally, big let down.

    Sidetrack will scroll vertically, and horizontal with much better precision and feel. Tap corners come in handy, have bottom right as ctrl-click, bottom left as Command-H.

    I suggest giving both a trial, Sidetrack is worth every penny.
