Talking Mouse Scroll


I'm currently using the newest logitech wireless mouse and I was wondering how I can configure it so that I can scroll when I'm searching the web.

I'm not sure also if there is an option to configure it to use the back and forth option. Thanks!

If you do a search on mouse and scroll you'll find lots of threads about that.

In your /etc/X11/XF86Config file (depending on your distribution) add the Zaxismapping line.

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

Good luck...
