Unhappy Need help with a microsoft 6000 laser mouse


Hello, I am running Debian Sarge 3.1 with updates installed. I recently purchased a microsoft 6000 laser mouse and tried getting it to work with this distro. Everything works fine except when i go to move the mouse it registers as a middle mouse button click. I have tried using knoppix and it works fine in there and tried using the config for knoppix in debian but same issue. Any help would be great. Thanks

I'm in the same boat you are, RHEL 4 WS fresh install. Here is my config:

Code:
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier  "Mouse0"
Driver      "mouse"
Option      "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option  "Buttons" "5"
EndSection
I tried using the event driver, but I don't think RHEL 4 has it.

RHEL 5 seems to work which includes xorg 7.1. My assumption is that there was a bug fix somewhere in there...

as far as i can see the problem was with xfree86 something with hardware handling but xorg fixes alot of my issues and everything works great now. so if anyone else has this problem i would suggest first to see if you are running xfree and if you are...upgrade to xorg
