[Bug 1103025] Re: [Lenovo ThinkPad W530] Trackpoint and trackpoint buttons do not work after boot



I have since updated my BIOS to 2.53 and am now running kernel
3.8.0-27-generic on Ubuntu 13.04 and have not had the same problem
since. Due to the intermittent nature of this problem I cannot say for
sure that this solved it, though it is no longer an issue for me.

Thanks for your help,
