    Scrolling with DualPoint Stick on Dell Latitude E6500

    Ok, so now that Canonical has gotten rid of the HAL in 10.04, how do I set up my dual point stick to allow me to scroll when I hold down the middle button?

    I was using the directions here (yeah, it's Arch, but it worked fine the last few distros).

    Any thoughts?

    (bump)

    My research so far has suggested that Lucid uses DeviceKit to replace HAL, but I'm still totally unsure how to actually use DeviceKit the way I was using HAL and Xorg before that to configure these sorts of hardware parameters.

    I also struggling with this issue and was wondering if anyone has come up with a solution.
    I have tried googling to see if I can come up with anything but everything that I have seen is the same as what theburningor has linked to.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks if advance,
    Xlar

    Have the same problem.

    I have install gpointing-device-settings. This is GUI configuration tool for pointing devices.
    Select "DualPoint Stick" tab.
    Check "use wheel emulation" and select button 2.
    It`s work for me.
