I'm trying to get the horizontal scrolling feature of the Apple Might Mouse
working in Slackware 11. Everything else works as far as I care (using
the "mouse" driver) except for the horizontal scrolling.
The issue seems to be that the "mouse" Xorg driver doesn't really support
the horizontal scrolling, so I'm trying to use the "evdev" driver instead.
But I'm having trouble just recognizing the mouse using the "evdev" driver.
Here's the relevant section of xorg.conf that I'm trying to add
(just trying to get the mouse working at all, not even worrying about
the extra mouse wheel or buttons):
Option "Name" "Primax Electronics Apple Optical USB Mouse"
Has anyone had success in this area? I've searched the forums and most of
them pertain only to the "mouse" driver.
I can confirm that 'evdev' is compiled into the kernel and that is the
identifying string for the mouse. What I am not sure of is whether the
evdev Xorg driver that comes with Slackware 11 is working...
