Trackpoint USB Keyboard under Linux, part 2

I haven’t blogged in a very long time; the top item of my To Do list is “post a review of The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks” but although I wrote myself a great little rambling Rogerian intro to that post, I hit a mental block the size of an office building when the time came to talk about, you know, the actual game.

But right now, I have a cold and don’t feel like doing much of anything, let alone creative exertion, so no review tonight.

However, Ubuntu 10.04 “Lucid Lynx” came out last month, and I’ve only just gotten around to upgrading (thanks, crappy Australian internet bandwidth caps!) and I’ve spent the evening upgrading, grumbling and generally trying to get things back the way I like them. Most of my settings came across well enough, but the TrackPoint USB Keyboard I use was pretty annoying.
