Hey Hey,
 1.How can the mouse (logitech LX3-optical) be configured, to enable web page scrolling with the mouse wheel?

2.On my 4.1 sound system, I am unable to get the rear speakers to play. How can I fix this? I use a SB audigy 2 ZS sound card.

Thanks in advance....flip city. ???

Look at your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file (open a terminal and type "less /etc/X11/xorg.conf").
The input device stanza should look something like this (esp. the ZAxisMapping line):
Code: [Select]
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier  "Mouse0"
Driver      "mouse"
Option      "Protocol" "auto"
Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

If it does not look lie that edit that file (you need to be root) .

While you are playing a multi-channel sound file, open a terminal, type "alsamixer" and adjust the sliders until you get sound from all channels. The "m" key will mut/unmute channels, the up/down arrow keys are used to adjust the channels.

This is what I see in /etc/X11/xorg.conf :

# Core Pointer's InputDevice section
# **********************************************************************

Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

    Identifier   "Mouse1"
    Driver   "mouse"

# On platforms where PnP mouse detection is supported the following
# protocol setting can be used when using a newer PnP mouse:

#    Option     "Protocol"      "Auto"

# The available mouse protocols types that you can set below are:
#    Auto BusMouse GlidePoint GlidePointPS/2 IntelliMouse IMPS/2
#    Logitech Microsoft MMHitTab MMSeries Mouseman MouseManPlusPS/2
#    MouseSystems NetMousePS/2 NetScrollPS/2 OSMouse PS/2 SysMouse
#    ThinkingMouse ThinkingMousePS/2 Xqueue
    Option "Protocol"    "PS/2"

# The mouse device.  The device is normally set to /dev/mouse,
# which is usually a symbolic link to the real device.

    Option "Device"      "/dev/mouse"
#   Option "Device"      "/dev/psaux"
#   Option "Device"      "/dev/ttyS0"
#   Option "Device"      "/dev/ttyS1"

# When using XQUEUE, comment out the above two lines, and uncomment
# the following line.

#    Option "Protocol"   "Xqueue"

# Baudrate and SampleRate are only for some Logitech mice. In
# almost every case these lines should be omitted.

#    Option "BaudRate"      "9600"
#    Option "SampleRate"   "150"

# Emulate3Buttons is an option for 2-button Microsoft mice
# Emulate3Timeout is the timeout in milliseconds (default is 50ms)

#    Option "Emulate3Buttons"
#    Option "Emulate3Timeout"    "50"

# ChordMiddle is an option for some 3-button Logitech mice

#    Option "ChordMiddle"

EndSection

Not sure where to make the suggested changes.
 RESOLVED the sound configuration,though!

Add this line:

Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

after the "Option "Device"      "/dev/mouse"" line in that file. (You need to be root to edit that file).

But I don't understand what happened because during the install you should have chosen the correct mouse configuration in the first place ???
