Activates 2-finger scrolling on pre-2005 PowerBooks.

Overview

iScroll2 is a modified trackpad driver that adds two-finger scrolling capabilities to supported pre-2005 PowerBooks and iBooks on OS X 10.3 and up (version 0.29 and later require 10.4).

Supported models include most aluminum PowerBooks introduced from 2003 to 2004 as well as all G4 iBooks.

Note: Models that have two-finger scrolling already built-in are not supported! These use a completely different, USB-based trackpad, the driver of which is not available as open source.

iScroll2 is based on Apple's AppleADBMouse-209.0.10 driver for the ADB-based trackpads found on older models, which is available as part of the publicly released Darwin source code (and covered by the APSL). The code added for supporting two-finger scrolling was written from scratch.

What's new in iScroll2

Version 0.32:
  • Fixed a typo in main() that caused the settings daemon to crash on load.
  • Please do not use version 0.31!
  • Note: This version requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher!

I have an aluminum PowerBook G4/1.33GHz I am using this right now, I must say it is awesome! I understand that is it not totally complete but it works like a champ now. I have it setup as a Startup Item because it drops the settings after a restart (I hardly ever restart anyway). I have not tried the Scrolling Trackpad on the new PowerBook G4s but I bet they cannot be much better than this! Kudos to the developer!

Very flakey performance on late model iBook G4. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. tested on late model G4 iBook. On an earlier model G3 iBook it seemed to work much better. But still no awards for stability. Both systems were OS 10.4.11

It works. But only after I enabled 'Two finger scrolling' in the Keyboard & Mouse preferences, which wasnt a very obvious requirement.. that could have been made more clear. Other then that it works great :)

Version 0.32 has given back the two finger scrolling, which hasn't worked since Tiger. It still seems a bit jerky but that is probably due to Leopard as everything seems to work poorly.

try going to the System Prefs and Keyboard and mouse settings. There should be a new button to enable 2 finger scroll, check that and you should be good to go.

I'm afraid that isn't the solution. But thanks anyway.

iScroll 0.29 works on Leopard but has a small bug of not saving your settings upon reboot. To get round this you can manually edit the default settings file /Library/Preferences/name.razzfazz.driver.iScroll2 using texteditor/BBEdit to reflect the settings you want.

doesn't appear to be saving settings after a reboot. I lowered the speed, rebooted, and it was back to max. Otherwise seems to be working in 10.5
