    Post Activate Scrolling with Middle Trackpad Button

    hi

    i would like to share my solution how to activate the feature
    to scroll by holding down the middle trackpad button and moving
    the trackpoint up/down on a thinkpad (x41) cause as i noticed all
    postings relating to this issue refering to the xorg.conf,but as i
    read in the ubuntuusers forum this function will now be handelt by hal

    so here are the steps that worked for me finaly:
    • cd /etc/hal/fdi/policy/
    • touch mouse-wheel.fdi
    • vim mouse-wheel.fdi
    • press "i" to switch to insert mode
    • copy & paste:
      Code:
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <deviceinfo version="0.2">
       <device>
        <match key="info.product" string="TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint">
         <merge key="input.x11_options.EmulateWheel" type="string">true</merge>
         <merge key="input.x11_options.EmulateWheelButton" type="string">2</merge>
         <merge key="input.x11_options.YAxisMapping" type="string">4 5</merge>
         <merge key="input.x11_options.XAxisMapping" type="string">6 7</merge>
        </match>
       </device>
      </deviceinfo>
    • press esc to leave insert mode
    • press "ZZ" to save & exit vim
    • reboot system & enjoy scrolling

    recommendation to all thinkpad owners...
    • tpb

    get it through synaptic to activate graphical output
    for volume, brightness & light buttons
