mouse: Buttons "5" ???


Hi,
I am sorry ffor the question which has been asked thousand time. I have searched the forum and did what people told in pervious post. However, I can active my mouse wheel. I wonder where there exists a option

ZAxisMapping "4 5"
Buttons "5"
^^
I am using Microsoft IntelliMouse which has 3 buttons(one wheel).

Thanks.

Thanks for your reply.
Are you using Microsoft IntelliMouse, USB interface? The setting of this mouse is

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "USBMice"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/intpu/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
Option "Buttons" "3"
EndSection

I don't know why the wheel don't work.

Thanks!

Hi
i have a different mouse but i think you shouldn't
use the Emulate3Buttons, so put a # in front of it.
my section;
Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
# Option "Emulate3Buttons"
# Option "Emulate3Timeout" "50"

wheel works (logitech cordless)
enjoy

You're welcome. Yep, I used the same part for the old Intellimouse & the new Wheel Mouse Optical, which I suspect are basically the same thing. They work fine. Scroll & click. I even used the old 3.x Windows driver on Windows no prob.

It's on USB-to-PS/2 adaptor. I don't like USB much. PS/2 works with ALL OSes.

Does yours have 5 buttons? Mine has only 3 including wheel button.

--
Section "Pointer"
Protocol "IMPS/2"
Device "/dev/mouse"
ZAxisMapping 4 5
Emulate3Buttons
Emulate3Timeout 50
EndSection
--

Are you sure it's right?

Option "Device" "/dev/intpu/mice"

It's very very stranger
Option "Device" "/dev/intpu/mice"
^^^
I copy the above line from my XF86Config-4. My mouse works. It's impossible!

What version of XFree86 are you using jetblackz?
The pointer section you posted is in the syntax for XFree86-3.x.x and if you have XFree86-4.x.x installed it won't work.

Ok, then your using the wrong syntax for your version of XFree86, it should look like the one mrGee has. Back up your existing XFree86Config and write a new one with the command "xf86config", do it from the console with no X server running as root. Or you may have a file called XF86Config-4, if so then thats the one you should be editing.

I am sorry. I don't understand it. Do you mean I have to edit XF86config-4? But I am using this file right now.

ok, thx, got the wheel working.

I'm using a Logitech Cordless MouseMan Wheel:

3 Buttons + Wheel + button in the wheel = 4 Buttons + Axis.

Is there any way to configure and use the 4 buttons in a RedHat 8.0???? (XFree86-4.2.1-21)

Thx

In response to the original post,

A mouse with a wheel actually has 5 buttons: the right, left, wheel click, wheel up, wheel down.

The 'wheel up' and 'wheel down' are the 4th and 5th buttons.

Hope this helps
