Slack 12 and mouse question


Hi,

As you know, when you turn you're windows xp and you go to you're browser, click with the 3th button it has the option to move the page up and down.
I don't know if this option is implemented in X yet ?
If so, could someone give me a hint of how to enable it ?

Thanks in advance

Well, I haven't been in win for so long that I don't know, but with my mouse (MS Trackball Explorer) & in my browser (Firefox/Swiftfox), I have two options: 1) I can roll the scroll wheel & the page will move up & down, or 2) I can click the scroll wheel, then scroll with the ball. Here is the applicable portion of my "xorg.conf":
Code:
Section "InputDevice"

    # generated from default
    Identifier     "Mouse0"
    Driver         "mouse"
    Option         "Protocol" "auto"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option         "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
    Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection
Regards,
Bill

Thanks for the reply Bill, but that won't work for my Logitech mouse...
Anyway, I also haven't used windows XP for quite some time now. I'll search google a bit more

Go in firefox into Options->advanced->common->use soft scrolling. I can't put here exact names of options, as my Firefox is in Russian.

In firefox, go to preferences - advanced - general and check the box saying "use autoscrolling". (At least I think it says so, Im translating from Swedish ff.)

Directly from the help button on edit/preferences/advanced/general.

Use autoscrolling

Autoscrolling is a useful feature which allows you to scroll the page by
clicking the middle mouse button (usually the scroll wheel) and moving the
mouse up or down. Some people find this annoying, so autoscrolling can be
disabled with this optionpreference.

Use smooth scrolling

Smooth scrolling can be very useful if you read a lot of long pages.
Normally, when you press Page Down, the view jumps directly
down one page. With smooth scrolling, it slides down smoothly, so you can
see how much it scrolls. This makes it easier to resume reading from where
you were before.

Thanks for the help

I found that. It could be done also like this:
open a new tab and enter - about:config
Search for
middlemouse.contentLoadURL - and set it to - false
middlemouse.paste - and set it to - false
general.autoScroll - and set it to - true

Best wishes,
Steve
