I istalled TrackPoint support for "backports" kernels in Jessie or later using these instructions: https://wiki.debian.org/InstallingDebianOn/Thinkpad/Trackpoint (namely, I created the recommended /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-thinkpad.conf file, which allows both vertical and horizontal scrolling)
