Trackpoint scrolling not working in Safari

2008-12-13, 13:26 PM

I have an x61s running Windows Vista business (32 bit).

 

Problem is the trackpoint scrolling feature not working in Apple web browser Safari.

 

Somewhere on the web I found instructions for fixing this by editing file tp4table.dat located in c:/windows/system32

 

However, I cannot find any such dat file in that location.

 

I did find a file with that name in the following location:

 

C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\tp4track.inf_45c84db5\tp4table.dat

 

To this file I added the following lines:

 

;iTunes/Safari Scroll Fix
*,*,itunes.exe,*,*,*,WheelStd,0,9
*,*,Safari.exe,*,*,*,WheelStd,0,9

 

However, this did not help, trackpoint scrolling still doesn't work in Safari.

 

Does anyone have an idea how I can get this working?

 

Thanks

Solved! See the solution

astra4,

 

1-Have you tried to reboot since the modification of the file?

2-Under what specific section in the file have you added the three lines?

 

 

Thank you

Re 1: Yes I did reboot. Did it again just now (turned on the machine) and still not working...

 

Re 2: I put them just above the [AutoScrollTable] line. The following quote shows an extract of my edited tp4table.dat file (located at the path indicated in the first post of this thread)

 


; Eudora
*,*,eudora.exe,EudoraMainWindow,AfxFrameOrView42,Internet Explorer_Server,WheelStd,1,9
*,*,eudora.exe,EudoraMainWindow,AfxFrameOrView70,Internet Explorer_Server,WheelStd,1,9
*,*,eudora.exe,*,EudoraMainWindow,MDIClient,WheelVkey,0,9

 

;iTunes/Safari Scroll Fix
*,*,itunes.exe,*,*,*,WheelStd,0,9
*,*,Safari.exe,*,*,*,WheelStd,0,9

 

[AutoScrollTable]

 

; AUTO SCROLL TABLE  AUTO SCROLL TABLE  AUTO SCROLL TABLE
; AUTO SCROLL TABLE  AUTO SCROLL TABLE  AUTO SCROLL TABLE
; AUTO SCROLL TABLE  AUTO SCROLL TABLE  AUTO SCROLL TABLE

Take a look at the following directory: C:\Program files\Synaptics\SynTP

Are you able to find the .dat file there?

I don't have a \synaptics folder under \program files.

 

However, I now found further tp4table.dat files in these locations:

 

C:\SWTOOLS\APPS\TRACKPT\tp4table.dat

C:\Program Files\Lenovo\TrackPoint\tp4table.dat

 

I'll try editing one of these and will let you know if this does the trick.
