Mouse (middle scroller button)


I have a 3 button mouse (with the middle button being the roller thingy). And I run Suse 9.1 and everythign works fine. But the middle mouse button doesn't scroll anything for me which is a HUGE pain since I was so used to it before, now it seems browsing email and the internet is a hassle (sorta). I actually use a PS/2 -> USB adapter since my new laptop doesn't have a PS/2 port but that doesn't seem to hamper anything, but that middle mouse button is what I am hoping to fix. Is there anyone with some suggestions?

Add the last option to the end of this section in your XF86Config file:

Code:
Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

    Identifier	"Mouse1"
    Driver	"mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "Auto"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/mouse"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
