FC3: Middle mouse button wont work


All my other mouse buttons work (including the side buttons) but my middle mouse click (Should be button2) just wont register in xev.

Heres my mouse config:

Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"

EndSection


I saw a "chordMiddle" option commented out and decided to try it. Made no difference. What does that do?

It seems whatever mouse i use (even where the 4th and 5th buttons cant be used) button2 will never be recognised.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Code:
Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

    Identifier  "USB Mouse"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option      "CorePointer"
    Option      "Device"                "/dev/input/mice"
    Option      "Protocol"              "ImPS/2"
    Option      "Emulate3Buttons"       "true"
    Option      "ZAxisMapping"          "4 5"
EndSection
This is the same section from my xorg.conf. As far as I recall, using "6 7" is more for the side buttons and you need to add on a few other programs for that to work.

The section I posted makes the middle button work. You should add the relevant part into your .conf file.
