iScroll2 for Mac0.32

14 November 2007

Activates 2-finger scrolling on pre-2005 PowerBooks.

What is iScroll2 for Mac

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!

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.

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.

WARNING: this software made my iBook G4 (mid 2004 model) kernel panic on startup after installation. I was able to fix it by starting up in Safe Boot Mode (hold shift) and removing the following files: /Library/PreferencePanes/iScroll2.prefpane /Library/Preferences/name.razzfazz.driver.iScroll2.plist /Library/StartupItems/iScroll2 (folder) /System/Library/Extensions/iScroll2.kext This was an unfortunate event and I hope this doesn't happen to others because it sure scared me!

The best settings I've found are: max sensitivy, slowest speed, and max resolution. Works like a charm in the finder. Superb and free!!!! :) Great job guys.

iScroll2 has never worked for me, not in OS 10.3.9 nor in OS 10.4.9. This version, like previous ones, is only intermittently responsive and when it does respond it's mostly jerky and twitchy. I've tried adjusting the settings every which way but just can't get smooth, responsive scrolling. My Powerbook was built in 2004 so it should be compatible with iScroll2. Those who have been successful using iScroll2 must be truly blessed; for me it's been a totally exasperating experience.....sigh.....

I love this trackpad driver - been using since it came out. iScroll2 is fantastic and i get frustrated on mac laptops that dont have it - however I urge the developer to go back to whatever circular scrolling method was used in 0.25, because no matter what I do I cannot get circular scrolling in version 0.26 to be as sensitive and usable as in 0.25 (on an Alumn. Powerbook G4 15" 1.25GHz). It is just way to jumpy and fast in 0.26...

For the iScroll2 ver. 06, once you install the main program, and update with the 0.26 install, use the settings posted previously. Then REMEMBER to experiment with your trackpad and put a bit of "pressure" on the pad with your two fingers, going slowly. Give the G4 time to process the scrolling. Do not be in hurry and expect it to work like you had a newer mac with factory two-finger trackpad scrolling. This technique worked for me like a charm once I decided to be patient with my fingers on the pad and pressed down a bit with both fingers simultaneously.

I loved version 0.25e so much that I donated. Better than uControl and Sidetrack. But I just tried 0.26 and I couldn't get it to work like I wanted, i.e. sensitive enough to do "small", fine scrolling, but enough acceleration to scroll through large documents. I gave up in frustration, uninstalled, and went back to 0.25e. Smooth as butter! I recommend installing 0.25e, instead of 0.26. BTW, would be nice to be able to map modifier keys, e.g. Control-scrollwheel, to commands in specific applications.

I too have been using this app for almost two years and it's great. I do think that the default settings may not be the best ones. I only use the Vertical 2 finger scroll and Two-finger click for a Right Mouse Button. Here is the settings that work best for me; with a little tinkering one can find the right settings. Vertical scrolling Sensitivity: Highest Speed: Fastest Ignore weaker axis is checked Scroll resolution: second tick mark from Low Maximum event rate: Highest On the developer's website, there is more information about specific settings in Firefox's config panel which can be adjusted for better browsing using the iscroll2. Also, it's recommended that "Use smooth scrolling" is turned off in the Apple "Appearance" system preferences if using iscroll2.

I've been using it for about 2 years and have very smooth and responsive vertical and horizontal scrolling - don't use the circular scrolling. It did take while to find the optimal settings so it sounds like you just need to play with it a little more, Herr Rex. My settings are: Sensitivity - 1 mark below highest, Speed - 2 marks below fastest, Resolution - 2 marks above lowest and Maximum Event Rate at the highest.

I'm afraid that iScroll just isn't ready for prime time. As a previous reviewer stated, it's quite jerky and twitchy. In its present incarnation, it's virtually useless. I've tried adjusting the settings in iScroll preferences, but have found no way to get it to operate smoothly and responsively.

Awesome! I tried Sidetrack before, and it's not a bad app but it's 15$... :) This one does the same, and more, and it's free! It also contains some extra configuration options for the normal "tap" function, that I had to disable before due to it's ridiculous sensitivity. Now I can finally enable it again! (Only gets a "four" in stability because I haven't tried it out much, so I can't be sure it's really stable.) Another application that should have been included in the OS, but I understand that Apple doesn't, to sell more new Macs... :)

I, too, experienced the same error(17535) when attempting to install iScroll using either Firefox or Camino, but had no problem when using Safari or Opera. iScroll is quite jerky and twitchy; I just can't get it to scroll smoothly at all. This app definitely needs more work. Side Track, however, is smooth as silk; it works much better than iScroll. However, Side Track offers no circular scrolling and costs $15.

(15" 1.25 GHz 512MB RAM) I am quite happy with this product. Works fine with me. Default settings were too fast, and tended to ask the GPU to scroll an image faster than it could be processed. I fixed that problem by turning down both the sensitivity and the speed, and as my preference, I disabled the circular scrolling. As an added bonus, the ctrl-click function (two fingers on the scroll pad and click the "mouse" button) works superbly. This was a wonderful add-on for those of us who always want to "keep up with the Joneses" in technology. And for those of us afraid to mess up their software or hardware, uninstalling is as simple as the click of one button. Scrolling through web pages has never been so simple on a Powerbook, and single-handed ctrl-clicking is very smooth.

Another feature locked away by Apple. I'm sick and tired of these lockdowns. They took expanded desktop and two finger-trackpad aay from me. I've taken them both back. Unfortunately, the stability of this little snippety is questionable. Scrolling suddenly seemed to fail, and I attempted to adjust it in the Preference Panel. After moving the Sensitivity and Speed sliders a bit, my Kernel panicked, and I feel it's necessary to report. Nonetheless, an awsome produkt. Easy to use, lots of features, and definantley worth it.

When Maximum event rate is set to High, scrolling is perfect in Safari, but overscrolls in Camino, Firefox and Microsoft Word. When Maximum event rate is set to one notch below High, scrolling is good (doesn't overshoot) in Camino, Firefox and Microsoft Word, but is slower and more painstaking in Safari. I've tried adjusting other criteria, none have any significant effect. Is there a fix to this? I've unchecked Smooth scrolling in Firefox. I really love this and appreciate the work you've put in, Daniel. Just throwing this out there in case you had a brilliant solution to this. Thanks for an extremely useful app!

Regarding Tiger compatibility: There is an issue with iScoll2Daemon (which manages the driver's settings) and Tiger. If the daemon is started too early on in the boot process, it will cause a kernel panic in IOHIDSystem.kext. Please note that this is not even related to the iScroll2 kernel extension at all - the kext seems to work just fine on Tiger, but without the daemon, settings won't persist across reboots or user switching. As it stands right now, I recommend you only install iScroll2 versions up to 0.24 on Tiger if you know what you're doing and know what to do in case things go wrong (i.e. safe boot). My copy of Tiger finally arrived the other day, so I hope to be able to look into this matter shortly. Thanks for your patience and sorry for any inconvenience caused, Daniel

Hi all, just a few words regarding the issues with 0.22: a) Why are the checkboxes for linear scrolling are not enabled? If you have a look at the website, you'll find that this is intentional, as you're supposed to make those changes in the Keyboard & Mouse pref pane (trackpad tab), not the iScroll2 one. (The "Please modify this val" string is a bug, but doesn't affect functionality.) b) Why don't the settings persist across reboots / user switching / ...? This seems to be because, for some reason, the iScroll2Daemon, which is responsible for managing the per-user settings, either fails to launch (via the iScroll2 StartupItem) or just crashes on Tiger, for reasons I don't know. If anybody has any idea where the problem might be, let me know. It seems to work just fine on Panther. And since my copy of Tiger still hasn't arrived (it's in the May ADC mailing), I am currently unable to investigate this. Again, if anyone has any hints or ideas as to what might be the issue here, do let me know so I can fix it. Until then, you can change any one setting in the iScroll2 pref pane after each reboot to load all settings to the driver. Sorry for the inconvenience, Daniel

I'm wondering how hard it is to make something remember the settings after you reboot, because I've seen requests for this feature on iScroll2 since it started getting released. I love this software, can't live without it now, but it gets so tiresome having to enable the scrolling every single time I turn on my computer. Please Mr. Developer, please fix this problem!

With .22 version of iScroll2 with Fast User Switching enabled, whenever I switch to a different account the preferences are lost. iscroll2 reverts to the default settings (in all user accounts, even the original login). I'm using: 10.3.9 Powerbook G4 1.33 Ghz. It also reverts to the default after rebooting. .19 version is more stable and is absolutely a fantastic program!!!!

The only way to make it work is to press "Load Defaults" at the bottom of the window, but the settings are forgotten after rebooting. Developer, please fix.

This program worked good enough on Panther for me to love it, and now it works just as well as my friend's new powerbooks double finger scrolling. Works perfectly on Tiger, thank you! Also, I do admire the new system preference pane, it is much nicer.

Pretty much the greatest thing ever. Two finger scrolling, not a big deal, you say? Well, sir, it definitely is. Also, the two-finger right-click is super handy. Only real problem I found is that it would be nice to turn up the scroll speed a little more. (Original PB G4 17")

I also was suffering with over-accellerated scrolling after the last update. This seems to have fixed that. I'm a little confused though, about the greyed-out "Please modify this val" check-box under the scrolling tab of the prefpane. I can't, 'cause IT"S GREYED OUT!! ;) I love this app. I had been using SideTrack on my 1Ghz AlBook G4, but this is the best.

After much troubleshooting and grief, installation of this program, in both versions .21 and .22, seems to have prevented my computer from booting up upon restart. As far as I can tell, it is a problem with the kext because when it is removed the problem goes away. I was also unable to transfer the kext file from one drive to another without the drive where it is installed freezing on me. I am running a 1.3gig powerbook g4 on OS 10.3.9. This was not a problem with .19.

MAJOR improvements over 0.21. Thank you! It's usable again, and one of the most highly valued installations on my PowerBook... ...but after multiple reinstalls and restarts, two oddities remain. 1.) The first checkbox under Vertical Scrolling is checked but greyed out (unselectable) and reads "Please modify this val". 2a.) I cannot enable Horizontal Scrolling within the iScroll2 pref pane. The "Enable" checkbox is greyed out and in a non-selected state. 2b.) If I select "Allow Horizontal Scrolling" in the Keyboard & Mouse pref pane, then the first checkbox under Horizontal Scrolling in iScroll2 also becomes checked, greyed out, reads "Please modify this val," and suddenly Circular Scrolling is enabled (I never use Circular Scrolling, and have never enabled it myself.)

I can't fathom how I was able to get by for so long without this. While the ability to scroll is great, it's the transformation of the trackpad button into a right-click (while two fingers are resting on the pad) that has me hooked. It's an automatic two button mouse for free! Brilliant.

I love this app. One thing I have discovered is that your cursor (arrow) should be inside the area you want to scroll. i.e. if it is in the dock you can't scroll. With "ignore weaker axis" it now even allows me to have three fingers on the pad and still scroll. Actually that seems to work better than two, and the fingers don't have to be so critically aligned.

Reverting to 0.19 after my next restart. (Already had to restart and reinstall to get it running as well as it is now, which isn't well at all.) I loved it before, all the way back to 0.7, but 0.21 is virtually unusable for me under 10.3.9 (PB 15" 1.25GHz). My complaints: 1.) Terrible overscroll. Renders precision scrolling impossible, especially in Finder windows. 2.) Horizontal scrolling triggers on a whim in bi-directionally scrollable Finder windows, even with the difficulty of triggering horizontal scrolling set to maximum. 3.) I don't like having the feature set split up between two different pref panes. Not sure if this is intended to be more consistent with Apple's approach or what, but it just means more effort with no clear gain for me. Looking forward to future spins, but taking a pass on 0.21.

The scrolling behavior seems very different in 10.4 as compared to 10.3.8. (I don't recall the version number I was using in 10.3.8). Scrolling is much faster, really quite too fast and feels too responsive to even minor brushes with the fingertips. When I stop moving the mouse, the scrollbar continues to move, leading to overscroll. Ack ... I hate overscroll. Still a great utility. Now all we need is the ability to fine tune both speed and overscroll.

I just installed .21 after uninstalling .20. Scrolling is spastic and inaccurate. Until all the bugs in .20 and higher are fixed, I'd like to stick with .19, but I can't figure out how to reinstall it. Is there a stand-alone .19 that i can access?

Note to all 0.20 users: If scrolling doesnt't work for you at all, please make sure that 'turn off linear scrolling' on the circular scrolling tab is unchecked. 0.20 has a bug that causes this option to take effect even when circular scrolling isn't enabled at all. 0.21, which I just uploaded, should fix this, and brings some other small improvements as well (notably slower scrolling speed). Sorry for the inconvenience.

This version, .20, causes twitchy, very hyper, inaccurate scrolling. can't regulate scrolling speed. I downloaded .20 and installed it over .19. I then uninstalled it and redownloaded /reinstalled .20, but the problems remain. Version .19 worked just fine, but .20 is a major disappointment. How can I redownload .19? Sadly, as .20 now stands, I just wouldn't use it. I'm using a 17" Powerbook 1.5gHz w/OS 10.2.9.

I waited for the revisions to slow down a little before trying iScroll2 out. So far it works just as advertised. The first time I tried it out, I thought it was having some problems scrolling. It turns out that my problem was due to Firefox's custom mousewheel settings (accessible in the about:config page). Once I figured out why my Firefox scrolling was so erratic, I've been using iScroll2 fulltime. I was trying out SideTrack before, but iScroll 2 has all the functionality that I need (trackpad scrolling and simulating a right-click) and it's free. This is a must for newer iBook G4 owners.

iScroll is a great application that brings two-finger scrolling to older machines. However, there is one feature present in the new PowerBooks that iScroll still lacks. With the new PowerBooks, it doesn't matter how your fingers are oriented - horizontally, vertically, or at any angle - the PowerBooks will still scroll appropriately. iScroll does not yet support this neat feature, but I hope they soon will. iScroll is nonetheless a great addition to any Mac!
