I'm trying to write a shell script that will automatically set the trackpad to use the three-finger-drag option that you can find in the system preferences. I've tried a number of different things, but none of them seem to work. Here's what I've got right now:
defaults write com.apple.AppleMultitouchTrackpad TrackpadThreeFingerDrag -bool true defaults write com.apple.driver.AppleBluetoothMultitouch.trackpad TrackpadThreeFingerDrag -bool true
I've scoured all the settings I could find from the output of
defaults read, but I've found nothing else useful. These are the settings that system-prefs changes when I manually change the settings. Is this a bug?
I'm running Mavericks on a 13-inch mid 2012 MacBook Air. The three-finger-drag works fine when I enable it manually.
EDIT: I restart my machine each time I run this.
