The normal way to scroll on a MacBook trackpad is to use two-finger scrolling.

Is it possible to scroll with one finger as follows:

  1. Press and hold a key-modifier (e.g. ctrl/alt etc).
  2. Scroll using one finger like it is two fingers, while key pressed.

What works for me is Scroll tool that allows you to enable single finger scrolling on the trackpad side. I got the idea from this superuser thread

    Thanks for posting Scroll as an answer! I noticed this question and decided to add this functionality in to the app, using the command key as the modifier. The app doesn't use Sparkle, so you'll have to download the latest version on the site. – Ryan H Jun 24 at 22:24
