Question: Secondary click in lion doesn't work, MAcBook air, Secondary click in lion doesn't work, MAcBook air

Hi, I have just installed Lion; but I have noticed that secondary click in Lion on a MacBook air (1.6Ghz Intel Core Duo 2GB DDR3) doesn't work properly.


I can't select this feature from the trackpad preferences panel. The secondary click option, in the preferences panel, is determined to remain unchecked.


Any idea on how to fix this bug?

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7)

... but if you really want that feature back ... you may do some tweaking:


"To workaround this problem on older macbooks, open Terminal.app from /Applications/Utilities/ run following command:


defaults -currentHost write -g com.apple.trackpad.enableSecondaryClick -bool YES


then log out and log back in (to disable secondary click pass NO instead of YES as the last argument)."
