Logitech Mouse Scroll Problem!


I have a Logitech Cordless MouseMan Optical (model number M-RM63), and Slackware Linux 9.0. It is a USB mouse, but I use the included USB -->PS/2 adapter (because I only have 2USB ports). But I cannot get the scroll to work! Here is the InputDevice section of my /etc/X11/XF86Config.


# **********************************************************************
# Core Pointer's InputDevice section
# **********************************************************************

Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "imps/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "ZaxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Buttons" "5"
# Mouse-speed setting for PS/2 mouse.

# Option "Resolution" "256"

# When using XQUEUE, comment out the above two lines, and uncomment
# the following line.

# Option "Protocol" "Xqueue"

# Baudrate and SampleRate are only for some Logitech mice. In
# almost every case these lines should be omitted.

# Option "BaudRate" "9600"
# Option "SampleRate" "150"

# Emulate3Buttons is an option for 2-button Microsoft mice
# Emulate3Timeout is the timeout in milliseconds (default is 50ms)

# Option "Emulate3Buttons"
# Option "Emulate3Timeout" "50"

# ChordMiddle is an option for some 3-button Logitech mice

# Option "ChordMiddle"

EndSection

As you can see, I have modified it a little, using advice from guides, but with no luck. What am I doing wrong?

I still haven't figured it out. I installed IMWheel, and played around for like 2 hours, and no go. I really can't figure it out!

I tried the IMPS/2 and it didn't work. I just also installed Debian, set it to IMPS/2 and it worked fine! This really stumps me!
