The touchpad of my Omnibook works fine as a PS/2 mouse (even if it should work as a Synaptic Touchpad with the /dev/psaux device, so maybe your Thinkpad works that way too.

Merry XMas.

I have it so that it works but when slackware boots it says something about a ismod joystick or something. Just trying to figure out how to fix it.

mouse not scrolling

Something that helped me was to update driver of the mouse causing you the problem. Once updated mine started to scroll. Hope this helps.

I have a cheap but nice GE Optical mouse that I plug into the ps/2 port of my laptop (I hate my "little nub" input device). I have my xorg.conf file with the following settings and still NO scroll mouse.

Code:
    Identifier	"Mouse1"
    Driver	"mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "PS/2"	# PS/2 Mouse
    Option "Device"      "/dev/mouse"
    Option "Buttons" "5"
    Option "ZAxisMapping"   "4 5"
I tried using IMPS/2 but it is not compatible with my mouse. The pointer went crazy and was uncontollable.

I have a USB Optical Kensington Mouse-in-a-box and the scroll wasn't working. Changing the mouse to PS/2->IMPS/2 worked just fine! After /etc/init.d/xdm restart of course.

I believe it's the /etc/X11/xorg.conf

None of my logitech mice work properly after clean install ... the way I fixed it was change one line in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Code:
    Identifier     "Mouse1"
    Driver         "mouse"
    Option         "Protocol" "Auto"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/mouse"
The one in red.

The IBM trackpoint is seen as a PS2 mouse.
