Question the mouse scroll = an endless problem


It's like this I have a microsoft intellimouse (laserbeam thing) with a ps/2 connection with using a usb adaptor. And I just can't get the scroll to work under slackware 9. It worked fine under red hat 8. I'll post my xf86config:


Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "mouse1"

Option "Protocol" "Explorerps/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Buttons" "3"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "SendCoreEvents" "false"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "false"


Someone that got any suggestions?

Change the Buttons entry to "5" instead of "3", and Emulate3Buttons to "on".

Oh, you may also need to change the "Protocol" to "IMPS/2".

for me such mice config works:
------
Identifier "Zhurcinja"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "ChordMiddle"
------
and take a look for more detailed info here http://koala.ilog.fr/colas/mouse-wheel-scroll/
this helped me to tur scrolling on.

Possibly. Try my suggestions from my first reply then, if IMPS/2 didn't work.

Now I've tried by adding the line "Option "ChordMiddle"" and changing the protocol to imps/2. And it still dosen't work. Why is it doing this to me?!

Try commenting out the ChordMiddle line. Also, did you add that Option "Buttons" "5" line that I suggested?

Yes, I added the "5". By commenting out do you mean erase the ChordMiddle line?

You don't need to erase it. By commenting out, I mean put a "#" at the beginning of the line.

Repost your mouse entry from your XF86Config.

Comment out the "SendCoreEvents" "false" option.
Comment out the "Buttons" "5" option
Unless you have another pointer, you can comment out the "CorePointer" option
Comment out the "Emulate3Buttons" option (this does have three buttons, doesn't it? Why emulate when you have the real thing?
This is what I have (with a logitech, but it shouldn't be too much different, the logitech isn't the only one to use the IMPS/2 protocol):

Code:
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Mouse1"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "IMPS/2"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/psaux"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection
That's all I need.

You should type in:

Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"

as moses and Locura suggested, not:

Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"

as you show in your post. I'm pretty damn sure it's case-sensitive.

Enjoy!
