Thanks for the reply.

I ran a test with Ubuntu and had the same problem. Followed the "How to 
get both T520 trackpoint and touchpad working in F15" while digging 
around on the web and found enough information that I think I understand 
one needs to try something in an xorg.conf.d *.conf file. I worked out 
what seemed to be the best info I could get online ... and then got 
wiped out by a case of bronchitis and decided it was the wrong time to 
try it.

If anyone expresses an interest, I'll post what I was going to try for 
feedback/corrections once I've rejoined the human race. The touchpad is 
"Synaptics PS/2 Port Touchpad v7.4".

For what it is worth, I have a niece who is really hoping I can't solve 
the problem and have to give up on that computer (smile).
