The proxy package doesn't exist. It's not a problem. I choose to use the FreeNX key.

$ sudo update-alternatives --config java

To use the blue middle TrackPoint button as a scroll wheel (using the red TrackPoint itself to scroll up and down), do the following. In a terminal, enter these commands:
sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf-original
sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
In the editor, find the section headed Section â€œInputDeviceâ€ / Identifier â€œConfigured Mouseâ€ and add the following lines above the â€œEndSectionâ€ line:
Option "EmulateWheel" "true"
Option "EmulateWheelButton" "2"
Save the file. Logout, restart X with Ctrl-Alt-Backspace, and log in again. Source for this item: Many ThinkPad-related sites, confirmed by experiment.
- Note this gives vertical scrolling with a ThinkPad X40 running Ubuntu 6.10 Egdy Eft
- Another note from a different user: I just applied this edit running Edgy Eft on my ThinkPad 390E and found that it works perfectly for me.
- Another note from a different user: I just applied this to my ThinkPad x40 with Dapper Drake on it and it's working!!
- Another note from yet another user: this fix has just worked perfectly with Ubuntu 6.10 on my Z60m.

You need to install this update:
$ dpkg -i acpi-support_0.85_i386.deb
After installing this package, the on-screen volume control does not work anymore ... can anyone confirm this. (did a lot of changes to my system, so I do not know if this reason.)
