Smile How to enable the Thinkpad trackpoint scroll feature

I was able to make the trackpoint scroll feature on my TP770Z by doing the following.

This is the relevant section from my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file (Fedora Core2) and the trackpoint scroll feature works like a charm without the tp-scroll script or anything else.

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "EmulateWheel" "yes"
Option "EmulateWheelButton" "2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

If you have a bios that can configure the trackpoint you have to disable the touchpad feature for the above to work.
