multi touch - How do I disable Chrome's two-finger back/forward navigation? - Ask Different
I went into the System Prefs and changed the Page change gesture from two fingers to three (OSX Lion). The three finger swipe seems to be more responsive at any rate and I'm usually only using two fingers for everything else.


Alternatively:
I know its over a year later, but I had the same question, and then figured out the answer myself.

Open terminal and type

defaults write com.google.Chrome AppleEnableSwipeNavigateWithScrolls -bool FALSE

Then you can have it enabled system wide, and just disabled for chrome. By the way, this works for any app, just replace com.google.Chrome with the bundle identifier of the target app.

If your interested in how it works, the AppleEnableSwipeNavigateWithScrolls is the global setting, that can be overwritten for any specified app.

Release notes/0.91 - Inkscape Wiki

* On OS X, the conflict with X11/XQuartz's pasteboard syncing has not been solved yet: turning off "Update Pasteboard when CLIPBOARD changes" in X11 Preferences prevents that vector data copied or cut to the clipboard gets rasterized on paste. (bug #307005)

* On OS X 10.9 or later, embedding bitmap images on import or paste from clipboard may crash Inkscape. (bug #1398521, #1410793)

* On OS X 10.9 or later, turning off "Displays have separate spaces" in Mission Control helps when using X11 across multiple displays. (bug #1244397)

Hide The Menu Bar On Your Secondary Monitor With Mavericks [OS X Tips] | Cult of Mac
Launch System Preferences with a double click in the Applications folder, one click in the Dock, or select it from the Apple Menu.

Click on the Mission Control preference pane icon and, once it’s in front of you, uncheck the box next to “Displays have separate Spaces.” This entirely non-sequitor check box will keep the menu bar from showing up on the secondary monitor.

Automator workflow "run shell script" keeps run... | Apple Support Communities
If I remove the “nohup”, the result does not change. Removal of the “/dev/null 2>&1”, however, results in the same problem originally described by Kim van der Leeuw. My guess is the background process has stdout and stderr redirected by default back to the automator. When redirected to /dev/null, the automator no longer waits for the background process to complete. To summarize, change
 
HOME=$HOME/Dropbox-quivertree /Applications/Dropbox.app/Contents/MacOS/Dropbox &
 
to
 
HOME=$HOME/Dropbox-quivertree /Applications/Dropbox.app/Contents/MacOS/Dropbox >/dev/null 2>&1 &

DockMod - Customize Your Mac OS X Dock
Kinda sketchy. Doesn't work for Mavericks (10.9.5). Does include an uninstaller script on the disk image, though, which appears to rip out all the kernel extensions, SIMBL plugins, launched profiles, and whatever else.

Mac OS X Maverick: Re-enable Tap and Drag on a Trackpad or Touchpad | a Tech-Recipes Tutorial
Prior to OS X Lion, you could tap and drag to select text, move icons and windows in any app where you had to select items. For power users, this is a very handy feature and is useful for those users with Macs that do not have a multi-gesture capable touchpad or trackpad.

1. Go into Preferences.

2. Go to Accessibility.

3. On the left pane, go down to Mouse & Trackpad.
