RE: Extra `mouse' button on a Thinkpad T21
X 4.0 or X 3.3.6?
it's all pretty well doc'd: I've got it running on a 600e, which uses the
same hardware and all. hmmm... check on the linux OS links under the
Thinkpad 600E: there's some explicit instructions. I think I just used a
generic /dev/psaux mouse and then set the mouse to 3 buttons, and, magic, it
both in X4.0 and X.3.3.6.
this may not work for you, but hope it helps. Mail me privately and I can
get you my exact X4.0 config file if you want...

Subject: Extra `mouse' button on a Thinkpad T21
I've been working with getting Debian running in all its glory on an
IBM Thinkpad T21, and am pretty pleased -- except for one tiny issue.
The T21 has a large button with a blue marking underneath the left-
and right-`mouse' buttons. Under Windows, this is used as a scroll
I'd like to set this up as a middle mouse button, but I'm not sure
how. I can't just remap it with xmodmap, since it's currently not
even being read by X (tested using xev). In addition, none of the
mouse configurations in gpm seem to activate it.
Anyone have any ideas?
