The only thing I can suggest is this, Look at this page on Lion Gestures:
Get in touch with your apps.
Multi-Touch gestures in OS X Lion make it feel as though you’re controlling your content more directly than ever before. So when you scroll down on your trackpad or Magic Mouse, your document scrolls down. When you scroll up, your web page scrolls up. When you swipe left, your photos move left.
This is reversed from what we know today, so... You can upgrade to Lion, turn the trackpad 180 degrees and it will work as it does today....
I don't know of any method to do this in Snow Leopard.
Many thanks guys - right now I'm considering two options, neither of which are ideal:
- Take a router and create a groove in my work surface the size of the battery compartment. Not wild about chewing up my desk, so probably not...
- Hope for a TrackPad feature the provides the functionality I'm looking for. Then I just rotate the pad, hang the battery compartment off the edge of my desk, and I'm reasonably good to go.
Fortunately there's no rush - although I certainly like the pad over a mouse.
I realize it's been a while since you posted your question, but I wonder if you found a more viable solution? I'm used to having the track pad just below the keyboard, like on the mbp, and use my thumb for quick point navigation. I'd like to put the magic trackpad just below my keyboard.
Found a MacWorld article that suggests a command using terminal...but I'm a bit leery of trying that as Terminal gave me a warning about erasing files.
