10.7: Restore secondary Click on MBP 4.1 Trackpad System 10.7
After installing the 10.7 upgrade on my MBP 4.1, along with the Trackpad's scroll direction re-orientation, I noticed that the two-finger touch+click was no longer invoking the Secondary Click (Ctrl+click) function. After digging around, I found the solution in an Apple Discussions Forum.

Here's the bit from user Maxym's Apple Discussion Forum reply that worked for me:

'To workaround this problem on older MacBooks, open Terminal.app and run the following command:

defaults -currentHost write -g com.apple.trackpad.enableSecondaryClick -bool YES

Then log out and log back in (to disable secondary click pass NO instead of YES as the last argument).'

As an aside: Along with the missing function, I also noticed that the example video for the two-finger Secondary Click in the System Preferences » Trackpad was also missing.

[crarko adds: I haven't tested this one. It's possible this has also been fixed in one of the Lion updates. If you have experienced this issue post about it in the comments.]
