Howto configure the TrackPoint of the Thinkpad Keyboard

January 13th, 2010 2 comments

To enable scrolling using your TrackPoint read the excellent thinkwiki tutorial.

But in order to get the the new ThinkPad Keyboard (the one without the laptop – just the keyboard) TrackPoint running, use “Lite-On Technology Corp. ThinkPad USB Keyboard with TrackPoint” instead of “TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint” as a device identifier.

If this still does not work, query xinput using $ xinput list, and search for something that sounds like your device. Use this string for your configuration instead of the thinkwiki suggestion.
