Trackpad scroll not working on some programs

#1 Post by mrtaufner » Tue Jun 26, 2018 4:01 pm

So that's it. For some reason, there are some programs (Telegram, Mozilla Firefox mainly)that wont scroll when touching the edge nor using the middle trackpoint button.

Also, it seems I can't update the drivers. Despite uninstalling the drivers and manually deleting the folder and files.

What can I do?

It is known that on this generation of Thinkpads, Firefox specifically (and a few other programs) need custom entries in the trackpoint configuration files to get scrolling to work.

Try following the instructions referenced in the following thread:

Current: Thinkpad 25 (20K7), Yoga 14 (20FY), X220 4291-4BG, T410 2537-R46, T60 2007-QPG, T42 2373-F7G
Collectibles: T430s (IPS FHD + Classic Keyboard), X32 (IPS Screen)
Retired: X61 7673-V2V, T60 1952-F76, A31p w/ Ultrabay Numpad
