Some minor changes need to be done, either the tabs on the optical base or the older silver top need to be cut. Regardless, it does have a following of few who like the ergonomy and enhanced scrolling ability. For some reason only the ivory version has the IBM logo printed up near the top of the mouse instead near the bottom like the other ones, AND later black ones used a silver logo. Per a decision made by the Ubuntu Kernel Team, bugs will longer be assigned to the ubuntu-kernel-team in Launchpad as part of the bug triage process. Dealer prices may vary, and prices may also vary by country. You will lose the ability to track transparent surfaces however presently looking into how to get the ‘best’ of both. The colour is actually very subtle, but the metallic black really has an edge with the glitter in the injection plastic.

As a result, the kernel team optkcal appreciate it if you could please test this newer 2. It seems that Lenovo’ s driver does some “software level event filtering” to let it work properly. The mouse with the wheels can be little difficult to use especially when you are looking for precise navigation.

I have the same problem with the same mouse IBM 31P I tried on different machines with exactly the same results. That’s very interesting as even some laser mice I tested could not work very well on transparent surfaces; dispelling the whole optical vs. Lenovo only manufactures the standard black issue ones. These are probably the harder ScrollPoint Pros to opptical, but also some of the least desirable due to their DPI ball mechanism.


I’m not sure what existing IC is in use by the ScrollPoints or other optical mice which use similar indiscreet sensors.

They came in black and ivory, with the exception that both used blue printing of the IBM logos. What separates an “optical” mouse from a “laser” mouse is simply the type of light emitting diode used.

If I knew anything about kernel driver programming, I’d write one myself.

Since optical technology provides precision control without a mechanical ball, there is no need for a mouse pad.

Kernel team bugs When you’re replacing scrollpoitn ScrollPoint LED, ensure the replacement has 800dip long leads to go inside the spacer. This is my favorite mouse under Windows, but with Ubuntu the erratic scrolling is rather boring.

Another possible yet less practical solution might be to replace the optical sensor entirely with a superior one able to operate on transparent surfaces, but it would have to match the PCB pinout. There are one of optkcal ways you should be able to test: This PCB is connected by two ribbon cables that are hard-soldered.

They came in two colours: First and foremost, it’s interesting the earlier IBM mouse lacked a detachable USB cable– and all of the sudden in the later models they implement this which is helpful when you have to disassemble these mice en-masse.


If you’re going xcrollpoint use a Lenovo board, be warned that some people have reported premature failure with them– most likely due to cold solder joints or prematurely failed capacitors.

Anyone still interested in this bug, please see my Fedora bug: I tried remapping all 17 i guess detected mouse buttons to horizontal scrolling and nothing.

For IBM machines with on-site labor, IBM will attempt to diagnose and resolve the problem remotely before sending a technician.

For an anatomy analysis we’ll use the standard ScrollPoint III the general design is the same across all models–however the ScrollPoint I may be different. Optica ScrollPoints in new condition is more uncommon, but not impossible.

Because of the extra feature being able to use them with both interfaces, these microcontrollers are often found in mice from many vendors. Telephone support may be subject to additional charges, even during the limited warranty period.

More later on in the article about the microcontroller. Here is lsusb output: This change has been made by an automated script, maintained by the Ubuntu Kernel Team. Please test against gutsy-rc when it’s out.
