If you use iGetter download manager and drag the "library" folder as installer suggests, iGetter will have problems.

Use copy/paste method by seeing actual folder (input managers) instead.

Since I have set the scrollbutton on my mouse + left&right movement, to go back and forward in Safari, I'm totally addicted. (and have to go cold-turkey when I use someone elses computer)

Give this a try!

Best... thing... ever... made... :-)

Combined with my eight buttons on my Logitech MX500, I can now do so much without resorting to menus or keyboard shortcuts!

OK, I have had serious problems with CocoaGestures in Panther. Actually, I think it may have started with Jaguar. I downloaded 1.2 awhile ago, which says it adds Panther support, and a few days before I upgraded to Panther, no Cocoa app would launch. Every launch of any Cocoa app would unexpectedly quit and then try to bring up the Terminal, but since Terminal is Cocoa, that would unexpectedly quit too. All Carbon and Classic apps would launch fine, although iTunes couldn't see my iPod for some reason. When I restarted, the Terminal would just keep opening and unexpectedly quitting over and over, and none of my menu bar extras woud load, including Apple's standard ones, such as the clock.

So I archived and installed, and while I was moving stuff back at the same time I was applying the 10.2.8 combo update. A little after I restarted in 10.2.8, the same problem happened again. I wasn't sure if it was 10.2.8 or something I was moving back. At that point, it was only a day before the release of Panther, so I figured I'd just wait and do an Erase and Insall when I got Panther.

So I got Panther, and it was working fine for awhile, and then I started moving stuff back again, and the same problem happened again. So finally I checked the error logs by using a Carbon text editor and every single error log was from CocoaGestures, which makes sense since it's something that every Cocoa app tries to access. So I trahsed it and reinstalled and everything is fine.

Now at this point, I'm not sure if the problem was CocoaGestures 1.2 or just my copy of
CocoaGestures or its prefs just got corrupt. I installed 1.2 about a week before the problems started happening, so I think it was just my prefs file that was corrupt, but I don't want to take any chances. So is anyone else having any problems with CocoaGestures 1.2 in Jaguar or Panther? I really can't live without CocoaGestures!
