Open up your XF86Config file, go to the Input Devices section, look for your "Mouse" or "Mouse1" identifier, and under it, add:
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Sorry to everyone else who wanted him to search, but I'm a fellow newbie Slacker and I just fixed it for myself...this is a HUGE forum, and the guy needed an answer, not a lesson in Gophering. Just my 2 cents.
I have got everything setup as usual, but my Logitech optical wheel mouse still doesn't scroll. This is strange, as I haven't had any problem in the past configuring a wheel mouse (even this one, on the same laptop).
Under the # Logitech USB optical wheel mouse section
Doesn't work either
I figured out that, somehow, the USB mouse is working not through the XF86Config but through something else. I took out the USB mouse from the ServerLayout section and it just works exactly in the same way after restarting X (which means it works fine, but without the wheel mouse...)
Any idea on where is the mouse being configured and how do I turn it off or put it doing wheel scrolling?
