scroll wheel not working
« on: June 16, 2009, 11:56:11 am »

The scroll wheel on my mouse recently stopped working. I plugged in a different mouse but the scroll didn't work on it either. Configuration problems? I don't think I've done anything to change mouse setup. Suggestions?

Vasm -> Xwindow -> Xconf

Well, I did that, but it didn't change the scroll problem.

Post the sections of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf that deal with "InputDevice".

Here is the mouse part of the "InputDevice" section of xorg.conf

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier  "Mouse0"
Driver      "mouse"
Option       "Protocol" "auto"
Option       "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option       "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection
