hi!
I have a Safeway wheelmouse and I want to use the wheel. I have installed the IMWheel packet, done everything by the README and the mouse still doesn't work. I have rh7.2. Give me a suggestion, even if i have to install other software!

What does XF86Config say under pointers? You need

Option "ZAxis Mapping" "4 5"

for instance. Unless RH is weird.

Post the whole section as it will help others help you if that doesn't work.

That looks right to me, except that it's missing Option and I suspect the absence of quotes is making a difference. And those settings may not work for *every* scrollwheel, but most. So edit that a little and you should be good to go.

I mean you've got:

ZAxisMapping 4 5

And it should be

Option "ZAxis Mapping" "4 5"

I could be mistaken and the syntax isn't significant but it usually is. So just add Option and the quotes.
