Since I do not use the touchpad anyway, I found a way to make scrolling work with the Trackpoint's middle button:
- Make the Trackpoint work by degrading it to a standard mouse as described above:
Code:echo "options psmouse proto=bare" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/trackpoint.conf
- Reboot or use modprobe + rmmod to reload the "psmouse" module.
- Activate scrolling by doing this after booting:
Code:xinput set-int-prop "PS/2 Generic Mouse" "Evdev Wheel Emulation" 8 1 xinput set-int-prop "PS/2 Generic Mouse" "Evdev Wheel Emulation Button" 8 2
- Enjoy scrolling
