I want to change the shortcut to scroll. Instead of using the edge of my (buggy) touchpad (see this), I would like to make my own shortcut with the keyboard keys.
Is it possible?
Thanks in advance.

Yes I did it. It is easy once we know how to do...

1) Install XDoTool and Compiz

sudo aptitude install xdotool compizconfig-settings-manager 

2) Open Compiz (Menu > System > Preferences > CompizConfig Manager)

ccsm  

3) Go to commands and add this lines:

xdotool click --clearmodifiers 4  

xdotool click --clearmodifiers 5  

enter image description here

Hope I enjoy ;-)
