Finally, all Logitech MX518 buttons can be programmed! Now I can get rid of SteerMouse :)

Side note: I had to reboot twice to be able to fully program my mouse buttons. Not sure if it's a problem on my end, but thought I'd mention it..

I deducted 1,5 stars for the lack of response on earlier support questions (made by me) by the developer. When someone purchases a software, some support should be given, IMO..

In my opinion this software is overpriced. I like to have my music at the same volume, but I'd pay around 4 to 6 euro's for it, tops.

Works great for customizing both my Magic Mouse AND my built-in Trackpad!

BTT doesn't have a native prefpane and I'm constantly having trouble triggering the gestures. It also feels quite buggy and un-intuitive, IMO.

I found MagicPrefs lacking in the number of gestures to program and it was constantly bugging me about updating some plug-ins through Growl, which I found very annoying..

Jitouch has a nice number of gestures, which trigger 90-95% of the time, a lot better than the accuracy I was getting with e.g. BTT. Again, these are my experiences, and may not be in line with what other are finding. I also found the way of explaining the gestures very intuitive (pop-up animation when hovering over a gesture), which is a major plus over BTT.

All in all, I think Jitouch delivers the best overall package for customizing your Magic Mouse AND your Trackpad.

I forgot to mention that the percentage of gesture triggering was referring to when I'm using my Magic Mouse. I'm finding that the triggering of gestures using Jitouch is much more reliable than BTT and MagicPrefs.

Great piece of software! Love the ability to merge From and Subject to tide me over till Lion Mail 5 comes out ;)

Don't expect any support from the developer after purchasing this driver. I've mailed him several times regarding a number of buttons that aren't working in USB Overdrive, but are in SteerMouse. Never received an answer...

Another nice feature to have would be checksum verification, using .sfv files.

But I agree the sequential extraction should be fixed first, before adding other features..

Too bad the 1.1 update doesn't fix the Exposé issues.. When the main window is being resized by Exposé, it becomes invisible (see-through).

While I'm giving Rucksack a critical look, here's another feature req :)

Folder actions for compressing files and folders. Would be great to just be able to right-click a file or folder and select "Compress using Rucksack"

Sorry to mix different topics, but I'm also still of the opinion that the 'Kind' string doesn't look pretty at all..

Right now the type identifiers name strings are all just the extension of the filetype. It would be a lot more elegant if they would say:
'RAR Archive' and 'ZIP Archive', instead of just 'RAR' and 'ZIP'.
Your app is eye-candy, but I think the same level of polish should be given to things that aren't necessarily so app UI related.

No, actually I mean when you select an archive in the Finder and do a 'Get Info' or Cmd-I on it. The kind then states 'ZIP' and 'RAR', instead of something a bit more.. descriptive (e.g. 'RAR Archive')

Quick bug I came across:
1. Open a large archive that takes a while to extract.
2. Open another.

Expected result:
Newly added extraction is added to extraction queue

Result:
User is presented with Split/Convert/Extract dialog, while running extraction continues to run

Maybe this is by design, but when the running extraction finishes, the dialog for the 2nd extraction disappears and the "drag to destination" dialog for the running (now finished) extraction is presented. This, IMO, creates confusion.

I hope it's clear what happens, let me know if you want me to clarify.
Is there somewhere I can mail for bug reports, instead of posting on MU?

Thanks Philipp! It's really great to see such good support on Rucksack. I'm convinced it will be the best archiver/extracter around (if that's not already the case).

Did you receive my feature request for adding files/folder to an archive from the Finder right-click menu?

The Services menu is what I was referring to, yes. I know HoudahSpot and ClamXav use it for searching/scanning in a specific file/folder.

This page has some good info on the Services Menu in SL, maybe it could prove helpful to you in some way..

It looks like the blocking still works after updating to 10.6.3, but I lost the icon in the Safari prefs pane..
