mouse wheel not working


My mouse wheel is not working on Slackware 11.0. I have an ordinary logitech usb mouse with two buttons and a wheel. In
mouseconfig i choosed usb mouse. The mouse itself is working correctly, but i just can't scroll in any of browsers or other applications. Is there any chance to make it work?
