Scrolling on MacBook Pro
|Reported by:||Dilbert2||Owned by:||nobody|
Hi. I have booted Haiku from a CD on my 2010 MacBook Pro. It booted well. There is a few issues, though... No sound, no wifi and no touchpad scrolling. This bug report is about the scrolling. (Wifi and sound is another story.)
The touchpad works beautifully for moving the cursor across the screen. But when I read long websites like newspapers, I must use the up/down arrow keys, or drag the scrollbar on the right side of the screen. This is impractical for everyday use. I need two-finger scrolling.
Preferences - Touchpad gives a few options. But checking or unchecking the "two finger" box, makes no difference. I can`t use the touchpad to scroll at all.
Also, tapping doesnt work either. If you are not familiar with Macs, I`ll describe. It does not have mouse buttons. Only a huge touchpad, which is really good. You can do "mouse click" in two ways on a Mac: 1) gently "tap" the touchpad, or 2) press until you hear a click Option 2 works in Haiku, but 1 does not.
On a Mac touchpad, you can do a "right click" using two fingers. This also does not work in Haiku.
I really want to use Haiku on this aging Mac. It`s a lightweight os. But I can`t without a fully working touchpad. I sure hope you can fix this soon :-)
