I have Kubuntu 12.10 and my mouse and ThinkPad TrackPoint scroll key worked fine until a few days ago. Now, it does not get the middle mouse button on the ThinkPad keyboard which makes it scroll. When pressing it, it now mostly pastes text instead of scrolling.
And the mouse scroll wheel stops working every couple lines and then starts working again.
This is very irritating and I find myself using scrollbars more often. Is there some way to get the mouse working again?
