Very strange Mouse


Hello to you all,

I just got a "Celcius A" fujitsu-siemens
notebook and installed debian unstable

Now my problem this notebook has a touchpad and 2 buttons left & right
and 2 buttons for up and down. And I also sometimes use a usb wheel mouse

Current settings let me use the usb and the touchpad
But both without the weel functions

so I have 4 buttons on the notebook and an usbmouse
with 2 buttons and a weel which is also presable.

This is my current setup:
XF86Config-4

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "ps/2"
# Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Buttons" "5"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Generic Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
Option "Device" "/dev/gpmdata"
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Buttons" "5"
EndSection

And the gpm.conf

double=1
device=/dev/psaux
device2=/dev/input/mice
repeat_type=raw
repeat_type2=raw
type=ps2
type2=imps2
append=""
#append2=""
sample_rate=
sample_rate2=

This all allows the usb mouse to be hot plugable.
What am I doing wrong? Dahm I like that wheel function

I have tried xev noluck
I have tried adding buttons up to 7, noluck
I have tried adding "im" to the protocol

for your usb mouse, use the protocol "IMPS/2" instead of "ps/2". imps/2 is the intellimouse protocol, but it'll work for a logitech or pretty much any other usb mouse with a scroll wheel just fine (does with both my MS and logitech mice).
