Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" won't work

Well, the subject speaks for itself... I'd like my logitech mouse wheel to work, so I browsed LQ a bit and found out that you must add Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" if you want it to work.. But what can I say? It did'nt help... I still can't use the mouse wheel...

I ran slackware 8.1 before and it worked very well then...

Where did you add it?

apax 11-04-2003 06:41 PM

under Input Device Mouse.. About there... Uhm, just under Option "Buttons" "5"

LogicG8 11-04-2003 06:50 PM

Did you specifiy
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"

yeah, I tried it, but then the X server did'nt want to load at all...

LogicG8 11-05-2003 12:19 PM

That happened b/c X won't start without a pointing device
(You can set it up to do so of course but it's not usually set to)

What's the output of:
dmesg | grep HID

LogicG8 11-05-2003 12:25 PM

oh yes and can you post the whole "input device" section of your XF86Config?
