Middle mouse button scrolling


I seem to have this problem with every install I do, and it eventually fixes it self, but I want to know what to do to fix it.

I have a two button mouse, with a scroll wheel in the middle. It isn't working currently. How do I get it to work?

Thanks

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ChordMiddle"
EndSection


That doesn't work. What am I missing/need to change to get it to work? Thanks

You have a 5 button mouse? Not too sure what that chordmiddle thing is, but try changing the:

Option "Protocol" "PS/2" to Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"

Chordmiddle is something for logitech mice, which is what I have.

I only have a standard two button + mouse wheel mouse. Soemone said to try that setting, didn't help.

I'll give that a shot too Thanks

if it is a logitech you can try making it:

MouseManPlusPS/2 instead of the PS/2 or IMPS/2
