Two mice, two wheels?


Hello,

I am running a Slackware 10.1 computer with two mice connected to it. The first mouse is a drawing tablet, and the second mouse is a Gyration Combo mouse with my keyboard. Now I have a question, I have added everything that I need to to my xorg.conf file to make the mice scroll, but only my tablet one scrolls. The other one is click able on the scroll wheel, but it will not scroll on a page. Any suggestions?

can you confirm what "everythign i need" is... if you had added everything, surely it'd work ;-) you will need to add a z-axis mapping command for each device, and maybe use xset to rearrange the "button" orders for the scroll to makes sense, but please post your xorg.conf

I added Z-axismapping and had it set to 5 buttons. The xorg.conf file has only one entry for the mouse, and I dont know how to tell in slackware, which mouse is is pointing to. They are both usb mouses, yet I dont know how to make sure that it is properly recognizing both mouses.

Ok here is where both the devices are locaed on the system:
Code:
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0c16:0001 Gyration, Inc.
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 056a:0013 Wacom Co., Ltd
And here is the section of my xorg.conf file that is pertinent:
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Mouse0"
    Driver      "mouse
    Option      "Protocol"      "imps/2"
    Option      "Device"        "/dev/input/mouse"
    Option      "ZAxisMapping"  "4 5"
    Option      "Buttons"       "5"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Mouse1"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option      "Protocol"      "imps/2"
    Option      "Device"        "/dev/input/mice"
    Option      "ZAxisMapping"  "4 5"
    Option      "Buttons"       "5"
EndSection
Yet the gyration will still not scrool. It will click on the scroll button, yet it will not scroll. Any ideas?
