Mouse Wheel in Xorg


Hi All,

Running Slackware 10.2 and Kernel 2.6

I have the mouse working in Xorg but the mouse wheel doesn't work.

In xorg.conf I am using ZAxisMapping 4 5 and protocol IMPS/2 as I normally do, but for some reason the wheel isn't working !?

so do you have
Code:
ZAxisMapping 4 5
or
Code:
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
in your xorg.conf?

the former is incorrect, the latter is not.

Yes, the latter..

The same code as I always use, except for some reason it's not working! :-(

Xorg.conf here

How about adding: Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"

do a xmodmap -pp and see what it returns. (You can almost assuredly remove the Emulate as well (left over from my Xree86 I believe

It's possible that the button mapping changed, then you would just change the xorg.conf to reflect that.

Code:
adam@gingernut:~$ xmodmap -pp
There are 5 pointer buttons defined.

    Physical        Button
     Button          Code
        1              1
        2              2
        3              3
        4              4
        5              5
Seems to match up?

Fixed... Not sure why, but I compiled the latest kernel with pretty much the very same config, and now it works... Weird.

2.6.17 works where the mouse wheel didn't in 2.6.13.

Strangeness....
