So I recently got a Wacom Bamboo Pen graphics tablet, which is wonderful. I've been trying it out as a general purpose mouse on my 14.04 laptop. The only annoyance is scrolling. The tablet has no scroll wheel nor scroll buttons, and moving to the scroll bar on the screen is really very annoying.
I remember using Windows you could click the middle mouse button to "autoscroll", which would be amazing with a tablet—it's exactly the sort of solution I want. I can't however, for the life of me work out how to implement this system-wide on Ubuntu.
I am aware that there are Chrome and Firefox extensions/options for enabling this for those browsers, but I would love something system wide. I understand that middle-click is "supposed to be" copy/paste on Linux, but when I have Ctrl+C/V I really don't need another clipboard, what I need is easy scrolling.
Any other solutions for simple scrolling with a graphics tablet would be much appreciated too. A keyboard shortcut perhaps?
