Two Finger Scrolling With Pre-2005 Apple Laptops

Post icon  Posted 18 February 2005 - 01:26 PM

Any one who resently bought a pre- 2005 ibook or powerbook is by now aware that there is a new laptop out with many new features including two finger scrolling on the touchpad

i found a way to make my older powerbook do this by loading a newer driver. it is quite easy. The only problem is that every time I reboot my machine, I need to reload the driver.

I am having trouble writing an applescript or shell script to do this for me at start up.

These are the commands I need to run:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
cd <working directory>
]sudo chown -R root:wheel ./AppleADBMouse.kext
sudo kextunload -b com.apple.driver.AppleADBMouse && \
sudo kextload ./AppleADBMouse.kext
------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the web site were you can get the driver.

What's wrong with pasting those commands into whatever.sh, chmod 750, and then adding that to your startup items?
