From the release notes:
>The MacBook Pro trackpad does not execute a right-click when you Control-click.
>The MacBook Pro trackpad must have the two-fingered click option enabled to execute a right-click. To enable the two-fingered click for a MacBook Pro trackpad, go to System Preferences.app > Keyboard & Mouse > Trackpad, and select the Trackpad Gestures option Tap trackpad using two fingers for secondary click.
From this note, "Tap trackpad using two fingers for secondary click" appears to imply it is sufficient to just enable the trackpad gesture option and use two fingers to register a right mouse click. In fact the gesture option is called "Place two fingers on trackpad and click button for secondary click" It is necessary to both place two fingers on the trackpad and[/i] click the trackpad's button to finally register a right-click.
I would appreciate a fix to the "right mouse click" quandry soon. Thanks in advance!
You're correct, the text and behavior are different by default; however, if you select the "Clicking" checkbox under "Trackpad Gestures", the text does indeed change to "Tap trackpad using two fingers for secondary click".
Try that and let me know how it works for you.
So does putting two fingers on the trackpad and clicking the trackpad button not generate a right click for you? This gesture works for me. Do you have the VMware Tools installed on this VM?
Oh, yeah -- you WILL need Tools installed (or have a very recent X.org install, for Linux distributions) for the two-finger right click to work.
This is because without tools, we have to capture the mouse device at a very low level to send its input to the VM; the two-finger right click is done at a higher level in software.
>So does putting two fingers on the trackpad and clicking the trackpad button not generate a right click for you? This gesture works for me.
Yes, it works for me but I'll never practically right-click like this. I'd rather use keyboard shortcuts or something else to work around it.
