Problem with Trackpoint Scrolling

2019-04-03, 14:56 PM

Hi guys,

my X250 laptop just got a factory repair, in wich they reset the whole system.


Now I have a problem: When I try to scroll using my trackpoint and the scrolling button, it only works in some instances. I can scroll on websites in Firefox, but in lists it doesn't work anymore. Lists like my settings or the file explorer. That is pretty annoying.


I guess it has something to do with the mouse being on a linked item. As the problem also appears in Firefox as long as my curser is over a clickable item wich contains a link. On items that are clickable, but don't "contain a link" in the sense that by right clicking it gives me options like "open link in another tab", scrolling still seems to work. That theory kind of contradicts that, in the file explorer, it doesn't seem to make any difference wether or not the curser is over something clickable or not.


I think I have another clue: I am not sure about this, but I think the symbol that appears by the curser while using the scrolling key also changed.


Advice would be greatly appreciated,
