mouse scroll wheel doesn't work properly


Description Steve 2004-11-01 18:26:33 CET
xfce4.2 is a great step forward.
My bug: my mouse scroll wheel will not scroll vertically in any apps. In
mozilla, the mouse wheel seems to go back and forth in the browser history list.
 In kde apps the scroll wheel scrolls horizontally, but not vertically.

I am running mandrake 10.1 official, xorg-x11-6.7.0-3mdk.  Other installed DEs
are kde & icewm, which work properly.  The mouse is a generic usb optical wheel
mouse.  The machine is an ibm a20 laptop.

[steve@localhost steve]$ ls -l /dev | grep mouse
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root  root            5 Oct 30 15:06 mouse -> psaux
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root  root            5 Oct 30 15:06 psmouse -> psaux
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root  root           10 Oct 30 15:06 usbmouse -> input/mice

XF86Config (yes in mdk it is linked to xorg.conf!)
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse1"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
    Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"

Please e-mail me if I have omitted any info that you need.  Thanks

Humm ,what if you try with:

    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

instead of

    Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"

Section "InputDevice" 
    Identifier "Mouse1" 
    Driver "mouse" 
    Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2" 
    Option "Device" "/dev/mouse" 
    #Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7" 
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" 
Problem solved.  I note that "ZAxisMapping" "6 7" comes from mousedrake, and is 
common to mdk 10.0, 10.1 and (as I recall) mdk 9.2.  Any idea why mandrake does 
Thanks, Steve

Really, I don't know why Mousedrake does that... BTW I close the bug since it's

Bug #440
