2 Questions: WINE/Steam and Scroll Whell
I'm running the newest version of Slackware; 10.2.

Okay, first of all, how might I go about getting the scroll wheel on my mouse to work? It works as a third button, I can click it down and choose workspaces and junk like that, but it won't do anything when I scroll.

Second, I'm having trouble getting Steam installed with WINE. I know WINE is really just a chance thing when installing stuff, but on all the sites I've been to, people have had very good results installing it, most of the time with no trouble. However, I am not one of those people. After I install it (it goes through the installation and everything just fine) the thing comes up for me to log in, but there is no text. Like, I see the Steam logo and the little green box with rounded corners, and then two little boxes where I'm assuming the username/password go in, but there's no text labels. I can provide a screenshot later if that description is too confusing. Also, when I try to run the Steam.exe file, it goes "updating", and then I get a fatal error "could not run bin/vgui2.dll". I am running it from the install directory, and there is a file called vgui2.dll in the bin folder, so I'm not sure what's going on there.

Make sure you install the necessary fonts for Wine. Steam uses either Tahoma or Verdana I'm pretty sure.

For the scroll wheel, do a forum search.

Okay, did a forum search, got the scroll wheel working, sorry for restating an already over-asked question.

As far as Steam goes, it still doesn't work. I installed both Verdana and Tahoma (ttf files) to the ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/fonts, and it still won't show any text on the gui, and I still get the "failed to load vgui2.dll" error when running the .exe.
