Trackpoint scrolling AND middle clicking

2009-12-05, 15:36 PM

Hello,

 

Is there a way to have both - scrolling with trackpoint while holding the middle mouse button - and - being able do a middle click with the middle mouse button? I can accomplish this easily under Linux like it is described here. But under Windows it seems to be impossible. I can only have either middle clicking or trackpoint scrolling. I need both. ;)

 

If anyone knows a solution to this please let me know.

 

Walter

Yeah, this is easy in Linux can't we get some pressure to actually get this implemented properly in windows. Useability is the main reason i got a thinkpad it would be nice to know we could actually influence it in some way. (Bumping an old topic here)

Can you elaborate on how Trackpoint scrolling is accomplished in Linux - I seem to have some problems finding how to configure it.

The strange thing is that it works in the built-in pdf-viewer, but not in Firefox, Chrome or any other programs I have tried it in so far...

 

I am running Ubuntu 10.10 64bit

¡Hola Walter!

 

Did you ever find a solution for this?

 

Got a W530 with Win10 (64-bit) recently and being pestered by this very annoyance.

 

I recall being able to middle-click with the trackpoint in the ancient 380ED y had in high school :)

 

The feature got certainly stripped out in the past couple decades :(

There is a simple program that performs a middle click whenever you press the middle button without moving the cursor. It's called TPMiddle and you can download it here, just put it in your startup folder. I've been using it for years and it worked on all Windows versions and Thinkpads I used.
