logitech scroll mouse


i opened up my XF86Config file and added the line

Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

but to no avail...

will the line

Protocol "IMPS/2" work? or is that just for M$ wheel mice?

I use IMPS/2 on mice that aren't actually Microsoft Intellimice.

Try it and see.

Let us know if it worked.

I use
Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

on my wireless Logitech wireless wheel mouse

Hope this helps

Matt

Here's mine:
(comments removed)

Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"

This is on a Red Hat 8 Machine.

I've never seen anybody use "Protocol" "Logitech", but that doesn't mean it won't work.

Edit:
I checked my Slackware 9.1 machine and it has the identical setup for the mouse, which is a Mitsumi optical scroll mouse. The thing in the middle is not a wheel, but it acts like a wheel, it can be pushed forward and backward, and it's also a button. The Red Hat 8 machine's mouse is a Microsoft Intellimouse.

Mine is the same with the addition of the line
Option "Buttons" "5" before teh ZAxis mapping line.

Option "Protocol" "imPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

I also have a Logitech MouseMan Wheel wireless mouse and it works just fine.
