Logitech MX518 mouse...


Has anyone had any success in getting the scroll button to work on this mouse? I've tried many different configurations and still can't manage to get it to work. And please don't post "ZAxisMapping" "4 5".

Can you post your 'xorg.conf' ? It should be something like:

Code:
Section "InputDevice"

    Driver         "mouse"
    Option         "Protocol" "auto"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

EndSection
If that doesn't work try the 'evdev' driver, read 'man evdev' or see here:
