I'm running xserver-xorg-input-synaptics version 22.214.171.1242-0ubuntu5.1 on a
Lenovo X300 (i.e. I recently upgraded to Xubuntu 12.04) and use the TrackPoint
with the touchpad disabled which otherwise would generate unwanted input as my
hand brushes it.
I have tried several different ways to disable the touchpad, which I think all
amount to 'synclient TouchpadOff=1'. Unfortunately none of these has quite
worked, as although the touchpad seems disabled, it still generates clicks
when the trackpoint button is held down (i.e. whilst dragging).
