Mouse not scrolling

I reinstalled my Mandrake 9 and now I can't seem to get my mouse functioning correctly. I have tried all of the drivers given with Mandrake 9 and non of them allow me to scroll, however it was working fine before I reinstalled. I have a Kensington Mouse-in-a-box-scroll PS/2 version.

Thanx for any help,
Richie Carnes

You XF86Config file should look something like this for the mouse

Section "InputDevice"

#Identifier and driver
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

That works for mine.

Same way if it is a PS/2 mouse.If it is serial or usb you need to change the "Device" part.I don't really know to what since I never used one of those.Just do a search here for wheelmouse and serial or usb.There should be plenty of threads about it.

Please don't double post, all it does is piss up off and make us close the offending thread.
