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

physical buttons.

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

But disabling the synaptics driver is not a clean solution.

A while ago, a kernel patch was offered :

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

cdd9dc195916ef5644cfac079094c3c1d1616e4c et al. are all in the leap 42.1
You can convince yourself by cloning git://

Right now, I really don't know how I can help you here.
Could you please provide an Xserver log file and run evtest on the device?
