How to get scroll wheel and thumb buttons to work.
 
I just installed Suse 9.0. When installing, I choose inteli/wheel mouse in the list because it's what it defaulted to, and my mouse wasn't in the list. It's a logitech cordless mouseman optical. My question is: how do I get the scroll wheel to work? And second, how could I get the thumb button to work in mozilla / epiphany?

I actually wrote a HOW-TO for this a while back.

Thanks. Actually, I tried replacing what I had in my "Section "InputDevice"" with what you suggested, and it didn't work. There were some lines that looked similiar, so after several rounds of trial and error, I discovered that the only line that I needed to replace to get the scroll to work was:
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Everything else stayed the same. I left Option "Emulate3Buttons" in there though, since I figured that might as well stay.
Hope this helps anyone with a similiar issue.
