#Option "Protocol" "auto" --> I tried it also
Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection



/etc/rc.conf :
moused_enable="YES"

That seems to be what I have for Linux and x.org (except for sysmouse, of course). I know there was a difference between them with the case if "IMPS/2", but I think that's ironed out now.

Is it a PS/2 mouse? Or a USB?

Without installing FreeBSD (which I may do anyways - just don't wanna play with Linux/FreeBSD/Windows bootloader right now), i can't suggest anything much except to try changing the "IMPS/2" to "ImPS/2" and see if it works.

Everything looks right. You've tried /dev/sysmouse, /dev/psm0, "auto", "IMPS/2". You have the ZAxisMapping entry (the biggie - doesn't always need the "Buttons" "5" option). Damn X syntax keeps changing!

Of course, getting to this point, i assume that your mouse works as a regular non-scrolling one...hmmm.

Its always something small. Thanks, I'll try to remember that, as I am thinking about installing either FreeBSD or NetBSD again. I may need to know that too.

i just wanted to add that imps/2 is a linux thing not a bsd thing, imps/2 would not work on bsd.
