openSuse 10: Mouse wheel not working


Hi,

I did not manage to get my USB Notebook optical mouse's wheel to work with openSuse 10 on my IBM R51 laptop.

In yast, I have two mouse settings; one them is the Synaptics Touchpad and the other USB-Mouse MouseManPlusPs2/ on USB after I couldn't find a closer match to my Microsoft Notebook optical mouse. I followed the adivce here and now my xorg.conf looks like this:

Code:
Section "InputDevice"
  Driver       "synaptics"
  Identifier   "Mouse[1]"
  Option       "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
  Option       "Emulate3Buttons" "on"
  Option       "Name" "Touchpad"
  Option       "SHMConfig" "on"
  Option       "Vendor" "Synaptics"
  Option       "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
  Driver       "mouse"
  Identifier   "Mouse[3]"
  Option       "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
  Option       "Buttons" "7"
  Option       "Name" "MouseManPlusPS/2 on USB"
  Option       "Protocol" "MouseManPlusPS/2"
  Option       "Vendor" "USB-Mouse"
  Option       "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection
In fc4 mouse scrolling worked out of the box, so I wonder what else do I need to make the mouse work...

A friend of mine gave me the right hint:

setting the protocol to IMPS/2 does the trick. So the correct xorg.conf sections shows:

Code:
Section "InputDevice"
  Driver       "mouse"
  Identifier   "Mouse[3]"
  Option       "Buttons" "7"
  Option       "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
  Option       "Name" "MouseManPlusPS/2 on USB"
  Option       "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
  Option       "Vendor" "USB-Mouse"
  Option       "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection
