I installed the Multi-Touch Trackpad Update to get the Inertial Scrolling and Three-Finger Drag Gesture but I don't see that it worked. The install said it completed successfully but after rebooting the Trackpad preference pane looks like it did before. Except there is a button at the bottom to set up a bluetooth trackpad.
Has anyone else with a MacBook Early 2009 model got it to work?

    My machine won't even boot after installing the update. I get the flashing folder with question mark and can't even boot from the Install DVD either. This update bricked my Macbook!!!!

    I'm having the same problem. After being installed the blue screen is loading for ever (I'm using another laptop now). I will give it some time for now hopping it restarts. What happens if I force shut down and start again?

    @ spaaz9:
    What happens if you press 'alt' (or i believe it's called 'option' in the US) at startup?
    It should give you a choice of available boot drives.
    Your harddrive should appear there.

    I too have just installed the trackpad update and it works pretty good!
    The menu is not exactly the same as it was.
    For scrolling and three-finger action there are some more options now.

    However, i don't have a early 2009 model, so it could be different with my mac.

    Yet another sad sarly 2009 macbook (MacBook5,2) owner on Snow Leopard 10.6.4. Downloaded and installed the update. No inertial scrolling. No change in trackpad preferences pane.

    @BamBamB:

    I was having the same problem and I let it try to load for about 20 minutes and it never did, so I just shut it down manually and turned it back on and it booted up fine

    Every hour or so since applying the update, my MacBook Pro thinks that the trackpad is being constantly clicked- if I move the cursor around, it highlights text, moves icons, etc. Very annoying. After clicking it a bunch of times after a minute or two it goes back to normal, until the next time.

    Is there some way to uninstall this update? It's very annoying.

    I have a Macbook Early 2009 and installed the trackpad update.

    No inertial scrolling, no 3-finger drag and no change in the pref pane.

    What is Apple thinking????

    Me too. Installation seemed normal. Boots normally. No problems except:

    No inertial scrolling, no 3-finger drag and no change in the pref pane.

    Frustrating.

    My trackpad doesn't work properly after updating to this newest driver as well. It's acting crazy now. Really hard to drag an file or folder. Is there any way to go back to the previous driver?
    Thanks.

    Another me-too post. Installed and only the new button appears. There's no 3 finger gesture (but there sure is a one finger gesture nor inertial scrolling.

    I am having the exact same problem after the update, very annoying.

    The update installed as part of the latest update cycle on a brand new MBP, and since then the two-finger scrolling is behaving strangely. It quite often seems to forget that it is scrolling, and switches to moving the cursor instead. Since I'm not really interested in the whizzy new features (two fingers is about my limit!) I'd rather like to roll back to the previous version...
