Superuser default that actually works?
Authored by: sureshot on Nov 01, '10 07:08:08PM

Here's an alternate default that definitely works but will prompt you for the system's root (Administrator) password, and require reboot (or reconnect?):

sudo defaults write com.apple.MultitouchSupport ForceAutoOrientation YES

Turn the trackpad the way you want it then place 5 fingertips on it all at once, with them fairly spread out like somebody's taking your fingerprints.

You DON'T have to remove the preference to switch back to normal orientation. Just turn trackpad back around and touch 5 fingers again.

I can confirm that this second variant works. It doesn't need the other preference, too.
