My track-point works, so does my track pad. The middle button of both my trackpad and my mouse can be used to close applications among other things. But I just cannot use it to scroll (the way we do in Windows).
I have tried almost everything listed out here : How To Configure The TrackPoint – ThinkWiki
I've attached the outputs of a couple of commands here :
root@vishnu-pc:~# xinput list-props "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint" unable to find device TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint
root@vishnu-pc:~# xinput list ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ USB Optical Mouse id=9 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ PS/2 Generic Mouse id=12 [slave pointer (2)] ⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)] ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Video Bus id=7 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Sleep Button id=8 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Integrated Camera id=10 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=11 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ ThinkPad Extra Buttons id=13 [slave keyboard (3)]
I cannot find my touchpad/trackpad listed anywhere here. I've already installed
GPointingDeviceSettings and that hasn't helped either. I've also tried disabling the trackpad from BIOS to see if that would make a difference, but to no avail.
What could possibly be wrong?
