openoffice scrolling on thinkpad

In my 'change how I do things' way of life, past days I gave OpenOffice a try when I needed to create a guideline document, more than 50 pages, with screenshots.

Big Blue gave me a ThinkPad T60 for work. I noticed that the scrolling with the little red button they call it TrackPoint is not working in OpenOffice. Then I searched the net and found some ideas on forums that a driver update for this TrackPoint is required.

Guess what, it WAS required. What I did was to go to Lenovo support, install a System Update software which would search for updates on Lenovo for the T60, then installed a Think ... Driver (cannot remember the exact name). After that, OpenOffice can be scrollable, at last ....
