edit xorg.conf rather than XF86Config?
 
I want to get my mouse wheel working. However, I can't find the file XF86Config, so I realize that I probably should edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file since I use dropline gnome. Unfortunately, even I add one line in the xorg.conf like this:

Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

but my mouse wheel is still not working.

What's wrong? Please give me a hand.

Thanks.

Your right - you do need to edit xorg.conf

But you need to add this line as well as the one above:

Code:

Option "Buttons" "5"
Also make sure that your protocol is imps/2 and you've put it in the right section (input device under mouse).

In the "Pointer" section of the xorg.conf file, you should have:

Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
