This is the 'ServerLayout' section of my xorg.conf (I've removed the commented sections)
Identifier "Simple Layout"
Screen "Screen 1"
InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
and "InputDevices" section (I've removed the commented sections)
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
# Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
I tried with and without commenting the last line (ZaxisMapping), but it didn't work.
After any change, I logout and restart xserver to see if the changes have come into place, but I've not had much luck!
I have set up Vector Linux such that I always start into text mode and need to manually start xserver (with a 'startx') to get it working. I prefer working in the command line and use the x to view pdfs (images) and check mail (not familiar with mail clients).
However, a scroll not working can be a major pain! Thanks for all the patience and the help.
