Is it possible to have the trackpad scrolling direction different from mouse connected to the MBP?

EDIT: Found the solution, check my answer below.

Hum, that's weird. While the trackpad and the mouse have different configuration panels, I can't get them to interact differently. –  Thecafremo Nov 7 '12 at 12:01

Found the solution.

Apparently you can solve it using software. I downloaded Scrollreverser, which is free: http://pilotmoon.com/scrollreverser/

This allows you to control the scroll direction both on the mouse and trackpad separately.

Really cool.

Enjoy!

Sorry but for me that's no viable solution, as it's closed-source. twitter.com/francoisbecker/status/430639783174348800 –  moala Feb 4 at 9:58

Another solution (the scrollreverser one didn't work for me):

  • Download and install SteerMouse.
  • Use the following configuration:
    • Wheel:
      • Roll Up -> 3 x Scroll Down
      • Roll Down -> 3 x Scroll Up
