Logitech ps2 wheel mouse


Hi all!

I find the wheel in my mouse a very useful. But how does one get it to work? I don't see it in my RH 7.3 Mouse configuration tool, tried Logitech mouseman+, but the wheel still won't work.

Anyone know how this is done?

Look over /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file, in your InputDevice Secion it should look similar to this
PHP Code:
Section "InputDevice"
        
Identifier  "Mouse0"    
        
Driver      "mouse"
        
Option      "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
        
Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
        
Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
        
Option      "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
EndSection 
It is mine for logi optical USB but the line you need to put if it is not there is
Code:
Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
this is the wheel mapping

Run x86 config and tell it it's a MS intellimouse, I believe the driver is imp/ps2, runs my Logitech and just about any other wheel mouse you can think of..................................

IT WORKS!!! <dance of joy!>

I've been very busy lately with the schoolyear starting and all... had a small window open up and my Linux box, who had been suffering from an Internet connection shared by an old Win2K laptop. Is finally ona na ADSL of it's own.

Anyway, back to the topic... IT WORKS!!! I was all set, writing down all the instructions.. set it it to an intellimouse and checked my XF86Config-4 file and viola! it was all set.

Started up X and the internet... tried it on Mozilla and Konq.... yup, it works.

Many thanks to ronin701, neo7777
