Thinkpad L430 - Trackpoint

Hi crunchbang forum!

I need your help. I have purchased a new lenovo thinkpad l430 and i'm trying to figure out how to enable the trackpoint with thee keys. I have tried every way that i found on the forum and none of them works. The red trackball remanes unresponsive.

from the xinput list command i get :

⎡ Virtual core pointer                    	id=2	[master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer              	id=4	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad                	id=11	[slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                   	id=3	[master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard             	id=5	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                            	id=6	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus                               	id=7	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Sleep Button                            	id=8	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Integrated Camera                       	id=9	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard            	id=10	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ ThinkPad Extra Buttons                  	id=12	[slave  keyboard (3)]

Every topic that i found is about the TPPS/2 IBM device but i don't find anything about mine.
Did someone had the same problem? Has anyone fixed it ? Thank you very much for your time.

ps: Also i could use some help for anything that could do my thinkpad's behavior better (cpu, hard drive, fingerprint anything) or configurations that you use on your thinkpad smile

edit: I forgot to mention that i'm using the Waldorf crunchbang

Re: Thinkpad L430 - Trackpoint

troubleshooting: when you turn the touchpad off do you get a response?

synclient TouchpadOff=1

Re: Thinkpad L430 - Trackpoint

Yes the touchpad stops working, the trackpoint not worikng and none of the keys. Neither the touchpad's nor the trackpoint's keys working.

Also the dmesg with the TouchpadOff=1 is running when i push the trackpoint and the trackpoint's keys and not with the touchpad and touchpad keys.
