Question MS Wireless IM Explorer Wheel not working


Hello,

I'm running Suse 9.0 and have recently gotten the MS Wireless Intellipoint Explorer mouse, and for the life of me cannot get the wheel working. The mouse has two side buttons as well as the right and left top buttons. The mouse wheel can also be mapped as an extra button (press on the wheel instead of rolling it), but that's not really an option that I need.

I've done a bit of reading and have edited my /etc/X11/XF86Config file as follows:

Section "InputDevice"
Driver "mouse"
Identifier "Mouse[1]"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "InputFashion" "Mouse"
Option "Name" "INTELLIPOINT MOUSE PS/2"
Option "Protocol" "imps/2"
Option "Vendor" "MICROSOFT"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

I'm relatively new to Linux, so I'm sure that I'm missing *something* but am afraid to edit the config file any further without advice.

If anyone has a solution, or just a good idea on this one, I'd really appreciate it!

As per the message about 'more info'....and more is always better, yes?

When running the dmesg command, here is the information it returns in regards to my usb ports:

If more out of that particular command is needed, please just let me know, I'll be happy to provide it.

When running the /sbin/lsusb command, here is what is returned:

Thanks again!
