Logitech USB scroll mouse - help?


My mouse is functioning near perfectly. In all other distros of Linux I've tried so far it's worked fine. In Windows it works fine.

However, in Slackware I have a problem. I cannot get the scrolling wheel to work at all.

The mouse section of my xorg.conf file is as follows:

Code:
# **********************************************************************
# Core Pointer's InputDevice section
# **********************************************************************

Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

    Identifier	"Mouse1"
    Driver	"mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "Auto"	# Auto detect
    Option "Device"      "/dev/mouse"

# When using XQUEUE, comment out the above two lines, and uncomment
# the following line.

#    Option "Protocol"	"Xqueue"

# Mouse-speed setting for PS/2 mouse.

#    Option "Resolution"	"256"

# Baudrate and SampleRate are only for some Logitech mice. In
# almost every case these lines should be omitted.

#    Option "BaudRate"	"9600"
#    Option "SampleRate"	"150"

# Mouse wheel mapping.  Default is to map vertical wheel to buttons 4 & 5,
# horizontal wheel to buttons 6 & 7.   Change if your mouse has more than
# 3 buttons and you need to map the wheel to different button ids to avoid
# conflicts.
    Option "Buttons"     "5"
    Option "ZAxisMapping"   "4 5"

# Emulate3Buttons is an option for 2-button mice
# Emulate3Timeout is the timeout in milliseconds (default is 50ms)

#    Option "Emulate3Buttons"
#    Option "Emulate3Timeout"    "50"

# ChordMiddle is an option for some 3-button Logitech mice

#    Option "ChordMiddle"

EndSection
Please instruct me on how I would get the scroll working.

After some searching on this forum I see a lot of people are being told to use the imPS/2 or something like that protocol. Would this work with a Logitech USB mouse or is that only for a PS/2 mouse?

After trying it to see, I have found that IMPS/2 for Logitech USB scroll mice does indeed work.

This should do it for you.

Edit xorg.conf and add the following:

Option "PROTOCOL" "IPMS/2"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

Works on my usb Logi LX5 and G7
