Hello,

Please reopen this bug for Leap.This is NOT a configuration issue, there is a
driver patch for that.

I have one of these Thinkpad (S540) with a trackpoint that does not have
physical buttons.

See this article and the first photo to illustrate what I mean:

http://mariospr.org/2015/03/30/bringing-sanity-back-to-my-t440s/

In Leap, the mapping is incorrect, so the trackpoint middle button does not
support scrolling.

The workaround in the article above might work even though it is aimed to
Fedora.

But disabling the synaptics driver is not a clean solution.

A while ago, a kernel patch was offered :

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=88609

For some reason, it seems not to be applied in Leap.
As said, it works out of the box on other distro, including Fedora.

Could you check if this patch is included and, if not, could it be added
please?
