2005-10-06 It seems that new version of the patch ( 2.6.12 at least ), the press to select entry in /sys is named "press_to_select" and not "ptson". I changed the page accordingly so that it complies with the Patch to enable advanced trackpoint configuration page. If you use an older version try :

Press to Select

Press to Select allows you to tap the control stick which will simulate a left click. You can enable this feature by typing the following in to a terminal (you may need to be root):

# echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/i8042/serio0/ptson

Press to Select should now be enabled. You can disable it in a similar manner:

# echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/i8042/serio0/ptson
