Use "EmulateWheel" option

This is what I have in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "MouseManPlusPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "Buttons" "4"
Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 8"
Option "YAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "EmulateWheel" "true"
Option "EmulateWheelButton" "8"

Holding down the small red button turns the trackball into a scrolling wheel. It works a lot better in slackware than it ever did in windows.

There are some interesting ideas at:

Also, a lot of documentation is on your own computer, for example at
