Trust Ami Mouse Optical


Excuse me, i'm here again: i cannot be able to activate the mouse wheel under my RedHat7.2 distribution and my mouse works only as a standard PS/2 mouse, but is a Trust Optical.

With the protocol of Microsoft Intellimouse and Logitech it doesn't work.

Can anyone help me in configuring this device?

Aussie, are you using the USB->PS/2 Adapter? Becuase i tried that setting a while ago with my Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical 5btn. and the mouse didn't move.

Anyways the setting i always use is pretty much the same as aussies but with the /dev/mouse protocol (with redhat, mandrake and the alike). But with Gentoo i need to use /dev/mice/mouse0

My mouse is a PS/2 5 button optical with wheel.
