Unhappy I edited my /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 ....


I edited that file and my mouse wheel still isn't working so heres how the mouse section of that file looks like.


Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
EndSection


Could you plesase help me edit the file so I can get my MS wheel to work

Mine works, the only differences between my XF86Config-4 and yours are:

my protocol is set to "IMPS/2" not "PS/2"

and I do not have "Emulate3Buttons" set (it is commented out with a # sign). I reckon this might be the problem. Trying commenting it out and try that.

So you should have:
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

Post it so that someone else with the same problem can see how you fixed it. That's what this board is for.

I did but I posted it before in the hardware section and the answer was so complex I posted it again and the moderatror said no reposting. Unless you want to hear it ... Cause last time I looked this forum was for linux newbies....

My bad they are posted in software

What I'm trying to to is get rid of this error

"Could not lookup internet add. for host3-null. this prevents gnome form operating correctly it may be possible to correct the problem by adding host3null to file "

and some one told me to edit a file and I just got linux and didn't know how to edit files but now I know how to bring up gedit. so where do I go from here.

Thanks in Adv ...
