    Since I do not use the touchpad anyway, I found a way to make scrolling work with the Trackpoint's middle button:

    1. 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
    2. Reboot or use modprobe + rmmod to reload the "psmouse" module.
    3. 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
    4. Enjoy scrolling

    I too facing this issue from long time. I have updated kernel version and Bios version too but nothing helped me. I am really frustrated now with this model. Now i think i have two option left as i am not getting desired output from anyone. One to buy a new laptop and second to switch to windows, which i will not love at all.

    Anyone tried installing an older kernel?

    Yes, please see the appropriate post:

    I only got the buttons working but read elsewhere that the whole thing works with kernel series 2.6.
