My mouse wheel


It doesn't work, like I can't scroll down on webpages. But for some reason it lets me click and scroll (You know how if you click the wheel down, it'll bring up a circle with up/down and maybe left/right options)

Any advice?

I have a five-button mouse, (Noticed that you had five buttons there), can I do that? Cuz it's hard to live with myself knowing I have back/forward buttons righ there, but still clicking it manually. Its like having a remote with dead batteries



Should I use the same as yours except change the dir to what mine is?

i think all you need to do is add:

Option "Buttons" "5"

Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
(with a space between the 4 and 5..) and it should work for ya
