10.6: Adjust trackpad navigation swipe
Authored by: asmeurer on Oct 29, '10 08:17:44AM

For whatever reason, Apple has left us early 2008 MacBook Pro users out in the dust again with 3-finger drag. You would have though they'd have learned their lesson with Snow Leopard, which finally brought 4-finger swipes to these computers.

What's weirder, is that if you go to their page, you'd find that the Early 2008 is no longer listed as one of the models to gain inertial scrolling, although if you install the update it enables inertial scrolling. There is a previous hint which enables the 3-finger drag, but it requires the update to be installed first. http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20100813190955687

If I remember correctly, you have to install the update on these older computer manually. That might be part of it, or at least it adds to the weirdness. Or maybe I am remembering incorrectly.

Yup, we did, which isn't very nice. Thanks Apple.

Actually, you can redo the trick for 10.6.5 (and 10.6.6 combo). It uses new drivers for the trackpad.
