By default the trackpoint is very slow and requires a lot of force, so i want to speed up sensitivity and speed. There are several ways: http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/How_to_co … TrackPoint but none of them seem to work.
configure-trackpoint doesn't recognise the trackpoint, the udev rule fails and the sysfs stuff won't work either, as there is neither "speed"/"sensitivity" in "/sys/devices/platform/...".
You can't turn off the touchpad in the BIOS/UEFI. Any hints?
Install xorg-xinput and use xinput. # xinput list-props "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint" shows what settings are available. Thinkwiki shows the general procedure for making changes with xinput.
Thanks, that did it! I'm testing atm with xinput --set-prop 13 'Device Accel Profile' 6 and that seems to be much better.
