Smile Answer for you

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 ZAxisMapping and it still doesn't work...

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).

Here are the relevant sections of my XF86Config


Code:
# Laptop touch mouse
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier	"Mouse1"
    Driver	"mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "PS/2"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/psaux"
    Option "Emulate3Buttons"
EndSection

# Logitech USB optical wheel mouse
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "MouseUSB"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option      "Device"        "/dev/input/mice"
    Option      "Protocol"      "imps/2"
    Option	"ZAxisMapping"	"4 5"
    Option	"Buttons"	"5"
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier  "Simple Layout"
    InputDevice "MouseUSB" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice "Mouse1" "AlwaysCore"
    InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection
Thanks for any help.

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?
