I've been fiddling with my xorg.conf adding options suggested by various sites I've googled. Nothing has worked, mainly because most of the suggestions are aimed at getting scrolling working at all, whereas my problem is that it's part-working.
This is what the xorg.conf mouse settings looked like to begin with:
Identifier "VMware Mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
These are the lines I've tried adding in various combinations, following suggestions:
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Unsurprisingly, none of these have fixed the problem.
Much googling has located someone else with an identical-sounding problem.
However his fix hasn't helped.
His fix was to ensure that vmware-tools and the vmmouse driver were installed correctly; I'm fairly sure they are, and I've re-installed them anyway just to be sure, but without any effect.
Anyone got any other ideas?
