Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I need a little help with the scroll wheel on my mouse. It used to scroll up and down, but now only scrolls down. I tried it on another system and it works fine. I also booted into Windows on this computer and it works fine there as well. I just lost the ability to scroll up for some reason.
The mouse is a Microsoft 5-Button Mouse with IntelliEye (USB). I tried to change the mouse in SaX2, but that did nothing to solve this problem.
I'm assuming you're using X (I haven't used SaX2) so can you post the InputDevice section for your mouse from /etc/X11/xorg.conf please? Hopefully, it's a misconfigured setting - have you changed your settings recently? The required settings vary depending on your mouse type, but here's mine:
Ever since I restarted my system, I can't access my keyboard or mouse. It works for the first part of the startup, but once it loads the system files and configurations I have no mouse or keyboard. The Windows key will exit to the command prompt, and then I have full use of the keyboard again, but I have no idea what I can do to fix this.
I can't get my system to work anymore. The keyboard will not type characters, but it will register [Ctrl][Alt][Delete] and the Windows buttons. The mouse will not move at all and the buttons don't appear to do anything. The light is on, but doesn't get brighter or dim when not in use.
First off I want to say that I am back in Linux again. I ended up going into root, did an init 1 and edited the xorg.conf file. After I did that I typed in SaX2 and entered the program. I was able to select and change options and save. I rebooted and now have my keyboard and mouse with the up and down scroll working again.
Nice work Sheesh, and thanks for posting back with the solution that worked for you!
No problem! I got a little help from gilead and RedShirt and pointed me in the right direction. I just had to figure out a little extra on my own to finish it up. If anyone else can benefit from my post then I will be very happy about that as well. We are all here to help each other out.
