Re: Sonypi driver, and Jogdial on Sony Vaio Picturebook

Try disabling the middle mouse button in your desktop enviroment.  For
instance, in kde there is an option about what to do on middle click. 
Of course, if u use that part on another mouse, it may be a problem. 
If that doesn't work, try googling
