[Bug 1431931] Re: T450s thinkpad physical buttons not configured properly


Hey jack tavares ,

i had the same problem with my T450S. I just tested the new Ubuntu 15.04
Beta2  and there the Trackpoint Keys are working perfect. left clicking
and right clicking and scrolling by pressing the middle button and move
the trackpoint is working out of the box.

BUT, even though i disabled the touchpad by the bios setting it is
working nevertheless  under Ubuntu 15.04 Beta 2 . Magic ;). I think it
is just a soft switch inside the BIOS settings, and the module is not
recognizing this setting inside the bios.
