Unhappy Mouse Config


Why is it that things that worked in Mandrake do not work here in RedHat. My wheel on my mouse does not scroll here in RH 7.2. I have tried /usr/sbin/mouseconfig but the effects do not happen. Is there another solution?

Hello there,

In Red Hat 7.2, you have to edit the "InputDevice" section of your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file as given below :

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no

Afterwards restart X and then wheel mouse will work for all applications except Netscape. And then to see how to fix Netscape problems, check out this page :

Best regards,
Salman

Are these commands or should I type something else in order to see these items?

These are settings you'll have to add and/or edit IN your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file. There is an input.txt file that will also help with what is being talked about. It is in the kernel source directory.

/usr/src/linux-2.4.7-10/Documentation/usb/input.txt or
/usr/src/linux-2.4.7-10/Documentation/input/input.txt

It's a very helpful file...I can't remember if 2.4.7-10 is the exact kernel dir, but you get the jist.

There has got to be a way to make this work - with a third party program or something.
