mouse scrolling too far


Hi!

My mouse wheel always scrolls way too much. When I move it only slightly it already scrolls a whole page down. I'm running a Logitech optical USB mouse (MX310) on Mandrake 9.2 with XFree 4.3 in KDE.

I suggest u google a little for the specific mouse driver for Xfree86
If you install the updated driver, my guess is, u can do some modifications
Cheers

Unless mandy disrupts KDE's functions...

Click menubutton->Preferences->peripherals->mouse
on the "Advanced" tab, set "Scroll by" to something sane like 1 or 2

@bnice: It was set to 3, but changing the value to 1 does not help unfortunately.

@king_nothingzzz: What mouse driver do you mean? There is no official mouse driver from Logitech. And anything else I can find is imwheel. Should this not be an issue with XFree86 or KDE or something?

what does the core pointer section of your XF86Config look like?

I think these are the crucial parts, right?

Code:
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse1"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
    Option "Device" "/dev/usbmouse"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse2"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
    Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option "Emulate3Buttons"
    Option "Emulate3Timeout" "50"
EndSection
Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
    # The Identifier line must be present
    Identifier "Server Layout"
    InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
    InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice "Mouse2" "SendCoreEvents"
    
    # Each Screen line specifies a Screen section name, and optionally
    # the relative position of other screens.  The four names after
    # primary screen name are the screens to the top, bottom, left and right
    # of the primary screen.
    
    Screen "Screen0"
EndSection
Don't ask me why I've got to mice there. There's only one (USB) mouse connected to my PC. Is it OK to delete mouse2?

It is an issue with XFree86 alright, i was thinking touch pad

I dont know much about this, but shouldnt the

InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"

be

InputDevice "Mouse1" "AlwaysCore" in the ServerLayout

My understanding is....there is one core pointer and all the others are *AwaysCore*...i might be wrong!!

Don't ask me why, but it's working perfect now. I played around with the Mandrake configuration tools, installed and uninstalled imwheel, and rebooted a couple of times. And now it's just like I wantef it. imwheel is not installed and my XF86Config still looks like in the above post. Thanks for everyone's help!
