Scroll Wheel [2 button mouse]


I am SLOWLY learning Linux. My OS is Mandrake 9.0

I need a "simple" explanation of how to get scroll wheel on my mouse operational.

NOTE: Some days I still have to "think about" how to open the Terminal window.

welcome to LQ oldbob.

is it possible for u to do an LQ search first? well, i ran a quick one and came up with this:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...der=descending

now, what u need to do is check out the threads in that link and see if u can find a similar case.

your case is somewhat common at LQ. If the LQ search seems to be not helpful, try www.google.com/linux and u'll get dozens of tips.

this is just to get u started in your new Linux path.
