The sane way of .. trackpad scrolling
i use thinkpads and really like the trackpoint. i also like middle clicking. this leaves one in a state where no sane scolling is possible, hold-middle-scrolling-trackpoint just seems wrong. so heres how to use the wretched trackpad for scrolling, disabling it as mouse.
# use VertEdgeScroll if your trackpad doesn't know about two finger scroll # synclient VertEdgeScroll=1 synclient VertTwoFingerScroll=1 # fix scrolling speed, higher values -> slower synclient VertScrollDelta=512 # get the correct device with "xinput list" and replace accordingly. xinput --set-prop "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 9999 xinput --set-prop "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" "Device Accel Adaptive Deceleration" 9999
