Do things change if you add:

Option "AllowEmptyInput" "off"

in Section "ServerLayout"?

All,

Has anyone gotten both the trackpad and trackpoint on a t400 to work
simultaneously? I can't seem to get it to work. Here are the relevant
sections of my xorg.conf file.

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout0"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
#InputDevice "TrackPoint" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "TouchPad" "CorePointer"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "TrackPoint"
Driver "mouse"


If Mick's idea doesn't work, make sure you have xf86-input-evdev installed,
and remove anything about the Trackpoint from xorg.conf. Evdev should find
and configure the Trackpoint automatically (for sufficiently large values of
should).

Default trackpoint *and* trackpad

Thanks for the responses folks. Neither suggestion made a difference;
I disabled the "AllowEmptyInput" option, ensured xf86-input-evdev, and
then removed all references to the trackpoint in the xorg.conf file.

It's worth noting that if I configure the InputDevice (commented in
the email below) to "TrackPoint" it works without issues (but then the
trackpad doesn't work).

Any other thoughts?

Works for me on my Lenovo Edge. Use the new "InputClass" section rather
than "InputDevice" in the config. Make sure to use '"MatchIsTouchpad"
"on"' to match the touchpad.

Keith,

Can you please send me the relevant snippet of your configuration?

Thanks!

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "synaptics"
MatchIsTouchpad "on"
Driver "synaptics"
#Option "SHMConfig" "on"
Option "VertTwoFingerScroll" "on"

EndSection

Of course you also need in make.conf a line like this:

INPUT_DEVICES="evdev synaptics"

This is the new (latest, AFAIK) way to override evdev and select
specific drivers and features for X server.
