Logitech Cordless USB wheel


Hi everyone, me again!

I'm using a Logitech Cordless USB Wheel mouse. Well, indeed I'm using the mouse but not the wheel

The mouse has two buttons and a wheel. The wheel is supposed to act as a third button and as wheel. The third button does work.

I tried the following:
Section "Pointer"
Device "/dev/mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Protocol "Auto"
Buttons "5"
ZAxisMapping "4 5"
EndSection

but with no effects.
I'm using SuSE 8.0 with KDE 3.0 and couldn't find a solution so far.

Thanks for your help.

Try:

Section "InputDevice"

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

EndSection


On the end of the file near : ServerLayout sections

Add:

InputDevice "Mouse1" "SendCoreEvents"

Hope this helps

Hi there!

Well, sorry, but it still doesn't work. I tried leaving the "option", adding "device /dev/usbmouse" and protocol "explorerps/2" and everything, but it still won't work....



It's really bugging me, I'm even thinking about buying another mouse.

Did I say I'm using KDE 3.0?

I don't really know if these suggestions are helping with KDE...

I have the very mouse and the buttons and the wheel work - a snippet from my /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file :

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

Does that help?

Well... using this config the mouse doesn't work at all.

I tried:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Protocol "IMPS/2"
Device "/dev/usbmouse"
Zaxismapping "4 5"
Endsection

and with this config, the wheel doesn't work. It's driving me mad...
