Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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?
