Intellimouse Explorer side buttons and scroll wheel broken after kernel 2.6.10
I've been trying to get this problem sorted ever since I compiled kernel 2.6.10, and have had no such luck. I posted about it in the Slackware forum, and have read all that I could find on the subject and have had no such luck. I thought maybe the general Hardware forum might be of some more help. I'm running Slack 10, btw.
Here is what I have in my xorg.conf file:
This is what is in my Xorg.0.log file that pertains to the mouse:
I've ran xev to check and see if it's recognizing the clicks on the extra buttons, and neither of the side buttons or the scroll wheel are being recognized. When I click the scroll wheel it is detected, so it seems my mouse is being detected as a 3 button mouse only.
I had a look at /proc/bus/input/devices and this is what it gives me:
I've tried to be as thorough as possible here. Is it possible that I compiled something wrong when I compiled the kernel that could cause the mouse buttons to not work properly? If there's any other questions, please let me know. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated as I'm out of ideas. :(
Any ideas? I've been fighting this problem for weeks now, and can't figure it out. The thing that puzzles me is why /proc/bus/input/devices is showing ImPS/2 as my mouse. The only thing I can figure is that I think I might have compiled usbmouse into the kernel. I've read of people having to disable that module, but if I compiled it into the kernel then I would have to recompile, correct?
Does anyone have any kind of an update on this? I have the same mouse with the same issue. I can't figure out why xev won't recognize the scroll wheel or side buttons. I really appreciate any help.

Your config seems correct. It should work perfectly.
setting. It isn't anything though. This setting exists for some old 2-button mice.Your mouse has a 3rd button and thus the
emulation is disabled.
why, but the driver doesn't care about it so you don't have to worry. As long as you have "ExplorerPS/2" in your config (and
the mouse supports it), it will work.
I use Event interface because in this pc i have a 10 button logitech mouse, but i changed my config to
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
And it worked perfectly.
All the 7 buttons of the Intellimouse Explorer and the 7 of the 10 buttons of the Logitech worked.
I now use 2.6.13-rc kernel but i have used the same config for years.
I was about to say that you may have forgotten to enable something in your kernel config, but mouse support is pretty
What kernel did you use when it worked ?
If you still have the source and they both are 2.6.X kernels, you can "diff" the two .config files and see if you have forgotten something.
