Scrolling not working in Opera 9.51 and OpenOffice 3.0 Beta with an R61

I've got an issue with my new Lenovo R61 with Windows XP Pro (SP3). I didn't get the scrolling working within Opera and OpenOffice. The tp4scroll.dat and tp4table.dat have these lines but it doesn't work:

; Opera web browser
*,*,opera.exe,*,*,*,WheelStd,0,9

; Google Picasa
*,*,picasa2.exe,*,*,*,WheelStd,0,9

; OpenOffice.org
*,*,soffice.bin,*,*,*,WheelStd,0,9
*,*,soffice.exe,*,*,*,WheelStd,0,9

; Windows Mail
*,*,WinMail.exe,*,*,*,WheelStd,0,9

; Corel Quattro Pro
*,*,QPW.exe,*,*,*,WheelVkey,0,9

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; Pass 1 rules (These rules run last)
;
; If no scrolling method was found with the builtin logic, then
; these rules are checked.
;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

Both files resides in "C:\Programme\Apoint2K"

The driver is newest UltraNav Driver for my R61.

Any ideas?

Same here...unfortunately the upgrade to Opera 9.52 didn't fix this problem.

hello,

 

yes the drivers of ultranav are for the most common applications and may doesn´t work on the newest and possible beta versions.

 

Update: Internet Explorer8 beta 2 is ok!

@Agotthelf: Is that the answer to our problem? I mean Opera & Open Office are not some exotic completly marginal softwares. I deliberately choose Opera as my browser for a bunch of historic, estetic, technical and political reasons...to tell me the the new Internet Explorer works with the Trackpoint doesn't comfort my a bit.

I'm sorry for using not only Microsoft technology... But as a web developer I need to use other software as the one from the most sophisticated software company. So can you told, my an old driver on an old piece of hardware (t43) everythings works, also beta programs, like your wonderful IE 8 Beta, but on a brand new piece of hardware with newer drivers, both (also OpenOffice 2.5 doesn't work) it doesn't work? I mean, is that the strategy of Lenovo? You can only use all features of your Thinkpad with Microsoft software? Sorry if this is the intention, that gone be my last Thinkpad.

Hello,

 

my example for working betas, like IE8 beta 2, was only an example of working betas.

I doensn´t want, that you have to use it and apologize my misleading answer.

 

TP´s usually uses synaptic touchpads, i would try to download a new driver on there website and see if it works.

sorry, but I tried several drivers, also the one of my old T4x series notebook. These drivers don't work on newer thinkpads... So probably the new driver sucks, because it doesn't reads its own configuration files... What a shame, on my fathers cheap fujitsu notebook for around 400 bucks all is working well, but on my 900 bucks thinkpad it doesn't. Seems to be my last thinkpad...

This is the interesting point I would like Lenovo to answer: What has changed in the driver that the old "edit the configuration file" fix is not working any more? And why is it just german users complaining about this? Do users from other countries do not have this problem? Mysterious...
