Hi there,

since the update to version 6.7 I am not able to scroll in Netbeans using the TrackPoint of my ThinkPad. In Netbeans 6.5 (and 6.0) scrolling works just fine.

Any suggestions?

With a fresh install of 6.7 on Ubuntu 9.04 my trackpoint worked. But on a related note it is constantly popping up menus when i scroll over text using the trackpoint. Any idea how to stop this behavior?

Hi,

Give this one a try
http://mcoder.wordpress.com/2008/06/02/thinkpad-scrolling-fixed-for-safari-and-intellij/
It helped to fix exactly the same problem with my T400. I think the 6.7 is
broken because in a Windows process list it's not anymore listed as a Java
process. As of 6.7 it's listed as a netbeans.exe. Make an entry for a
netbeans.exe in the C:\Program Files\Synaptics\SynTP\TP4table.dat. You may
need to restart the Windows afterwards to make changes work.

cheers,
Marcin

I have the same issue on Linux. When using trackpoint and middle click for scrolling the menu pops up every time.

Any solution for me? Smile
Thanks

heya,

Yeah, I experienced the same issue under Linux as well.

I posted an issue with Netbeans here:

http://www.netbeans.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=173927

and somebody replied it was probably an issue with the Java runtime.

I checked in another Java app (BucketExplorer) and it indeed had the same issue.

I guess I should file an issue against the JRE. I'm surprised nobody else has encountered this issue? (I couldn't find it in the existing list of issues).

Cheers,
Victor
