The driver supports right clicking, too
Authored by: Apogaion on Feb 14, '05 08:42:35PM

Not mentioned in the hint is that the new driver interprets a mouse click as a right click when combined with two fingers on the trackpad. As of a couple days ago when I downloaded rev 4 of the code, the right click feature worked, but not in exactly the same way for all apps. In most apps, you need to do the following:

  1. click and hold
  2. tap and release two fingers on the pad
  3. release the click
  4. move the mouse to your desired option on the context menu

Note that in Safari if you use this method to right click on a link, then cancel the right click (by clicking outside the context menu), it will follow the link instead.

This sounds complicated, but after a few clicks it happens without thinking about it. It's really quite a nice bonus to the already great scrolling features of the driver, and it's already saving me time as I work.

Ahh, so that's how you use it. It's a shame that just two-finger-tapping won't pop up the menu.

Incidentally, the driver works on my Christmas present 12" iBook. I've got some friends with an early '04 1GHz 12", I wonder if it'll work on theirs?
