On ThinkPad Edge 325 laptop I have UltraNav device (both touchpad and trackpoint). I never use touchpad as pointing device, but I find it handy to use it for scrolling. Is there any way to disable all pointing device functionality on touchpad, but retain scrolling?
Edit: I actually want to have only two-finger scrolling, so that all the events with one finger would be ignored by touchpad. The solution below indeed turns touchpad to scrolling-only device, but it still makes me suffer from accidential touchs.

You could expand the right side scrolling area to your whole touchpad with the parameters synclient offers you.
@cju: Thank you for quick responce! Unforunately I failed to express my problem clearly, so I guess I should redact my post.
I ahve never tried this, but what if you made the actual requirements for pointer movement ridiculously small. So much so that it would never register as being legit. I'm not sure exactly what options you would use... maybe zpressure? I have thought about this before, but the best thing that I could come up with was expanding the right scroll as mentioned above.
Of course, you could always just modify the source and recompile.
