ahhhh yes. the most commonly asked question

you have to edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and under the mouse section, include the lines

"Buttons" "5"
"ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

mine looks like this

Quote:
Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
make sure you have a space between the 4 and the 5 in the ZAxisMapping line...

Maybe you could just make a search before asking. This is asked each day and everything is mentioned in shilo's guide if anybody cares to read.

Why don't they include support for mouse wheels during install? Surely enough people have them...
