X62 and not working middle trackpoint button

#1 Post by wujstefan » Tue Dec 12, 2017 1:26 pm

As in the topic: I can't figure out how to enable the middle (scroll) button in my X62 / W7 64-bit.

It just does not reckon it has one. This thing is crucial for most of X62 owners (I believe), so I hope somebody out there have had such problem and managed to cope.

Works like a charm for me, thanks to tpmiddle 0.6 even with scrolling AND middle-click, like in linux. Just install the driver like shown in these pictures:

The driver download link is dead but as the image shows, they used the regular lenovo ultranav driver, version 6hgx72ww. Can't find that on lenovo's page, but the 6hgx81ww version (regular driver for T61, T500 etc) works fine, too. Download it here:

Well it started working just like that. No drivers installed, no reboot, it just... started :)
