Mouse Config
 
Hi guys, hows it going?





I,m trying to configure my mouse so that the wheel works, well I should say so the wheel scrolls the active window becuase instead of scrolling the window that i,m using it just scrolls the cursor up and down instead and in the opposite direction to the one that I want?





Has anyone else had this problem? :confused:





Thx guys

well, a copy of your x config file might be necessary to help out with your problem

Yeah your probably right m8 doh ;)

Here is the pointer section

# **********************************************************************
# Pointer section
# **********************************************************************

Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "Emulate3Buttons"
Option "Emulate3Timeout" "50"

# ChordMiddle is an option for some 3-button Logitech mice

# Option "ChordMiddle"

EndSection

Thx

Oh and also I,ve tried some combinations of ZMapping 4 5 etc but nothing seems to work and as I said before the cursor scrolls so I dont think its that anyway.

well, im not sure if this is your problem, but if you are using the wheel, you should not be using emulate 3 buttons, that should be commented out

right-o there. I found a good how-to on the issue at http://www.linuxheadquarters.com/how.../imwheel.shtml - you might see if that helps, if you havent' yet.

OK I tried what you said but still no joy and then I changed it to this.....

# **********************************************************************
# Pointer section
# **********************************************************************

Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMaping" "4 5"


# ChordMiddle is an option for some 3-button Logitech mice

# Option "ChordMiddle"

EndSection

But its still doing exactly the same thing as before...the mouse pointer scrolls instead of the window i,m using

I,m stumped on this one

I'm not too snazzy on the subject, but I'd look at two things.
1.) I don't remember you mentioning, but are you sure it is a "supported" scroll mouse?

2.) Do you have the package installed that gives you functionality?

I might be smoking crack here...
