I recently bought a laptop, to be more specific a IBM Thinkpad 600E. This Laptop has a Trackpoint instead of a external mouse (I could connect one, but I dont want to have to transport all the time a mouse with me) or a touchpad.
My problem is now, that my Distro (Vector Linux, based on Slackware) doesn't detect this Trackpoint properly. When I start X, the Trackpoint jumps around or does nothing. What do I wrong or what do I have to consider during the installation (special options).
Im not shure which protocol this trackpoint uses, because I dont have a manual and the IBM website isnt really helpful.
PLEASE HELP ME
P.S. Im absolutely new with linux, so please give me very detailed instructions, etc. thx!
