have a look at


it's precisely described on that page. Works perfectly for
me on the X24, haven't tried it yet on the T40, but since
this is a X-feature it should be no problem. The only
drawback is the point that it 'costs' you the
button-functionality of the one used for scrolling, but I
handled this by mapping the button to the press-to-click
function of the trackpoint. You'll need some other piece of
software to do this: trackpoint-deamon. It's linked on the
above page...

Have fun,
