I have five button a4tech optical mouse, but only two buttons work so the scrolling also does not work, can any body help me how to enable my scrolling?
here is my xorg.conf file
and one more thing why we have xorg.conf file where the xf86config file has gone?
I am using slackware 10.0
# Identifier and driver
# On platforms where PnP mouse detection is supported the following
# protocol setting can be used when using a newer PnP mouse:
# Option "Protocol" "Auto"
# The available mouse protocols types that you can set below are:
# Auto BusMouse GlidePoint GlidePointPS/2 IntelliMouse IMPS/2
# Logitech Microsoft MMHitTab MMSeries Mouseman MouseManPlusPS/2
# MouseSystems NetMousePS/2 NetScrollPS/2 OSMouse PS/2 SysMouse
# ThinkingMouse ThinkingMousePS/2 Xqueue
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
# The mouse device. The device is normally set to /dev/mouse,
# which is usually a symbolic link to the real device.
Try changing the Buttons to 7 and add a YAxis line similar to ZAxis.
Don't have that type of mouse myself but give it a shot. I'm just
stabbing at this.
(Edit: I also noticed that your BAUD and SAMPLE Rates are commented
out, try uncommenting those two lines and it should slow down. If you
google your mouse or look it up on the support website, if known, then
you can put the actual numbers there for that particular mouse.)
