Yes, until a week ago, I was still using a T60p and Windows XP, because it was set up exactly right and worked perfectly! I had tried an X1 Carbon a while back, but had to send it back because the left mouse button didn't work unless you really really smashed on it: an easy click wouldn't register.
Well, I finally bit the bullet, and I have here an X1 Extreme gen 5/ Windows 11. The left mouse button works most of the time, though still not on an easy click, but maybe I can get used to pushing it harder.
But still, I don't have nearly the precision with the trackpoint/cursor as I do on the T60p. On the T60p I can just about put my finger on the button and *will* it to go exactly where I want, whereas on the Extreme, it's soooo hard to control the location of the cursor. I played with a lot of different sensitivity/mouse speed settings, and still no go. I believe that the problem could be at least improved if I could get, not more *speed*, but more of what they call "sensitivity," which appears to be the force that is required to get the cursor moving. I have it set all the way to 11, which is much better than a minimum setting, but I think it's still quite a bit more force than I'm used to. It's under "Elan Trackpoint for Thinkpad" in the settings.
Anyone know something to try?
This 3rd party cap helps to make the TrackPoint feel faster on newer models.
I'm thinking I'll have to return this unit unless I find a solution. Controlling the cursor with this trackpoint/button combo makes me crazy every time I open the machine. Are there *alternate* drivers that can be used?
