Wheel mouse and Netscape forms

Wheel mouse and Netscape forms

Post by Seer Snivel » Fri, 02 Jul 1999 04:00:00



I have a Redhat 6.0 system with a Genius Netscroll wheel mouse.  The
Redhat install did a great job setting up my scripts and got it to work
right away.  Every GTK widget works with no problem ever, but Netscape
I had to set up myself.  I cut and pasted from the X Wheel Mouse page
I see links to everywhere in my .Xdefaults file (to follow).

It works great until I type anything in a form, or _sometimes_  clicking
in a frame and then use the wheel, the function of the wheel mouse stops
working on all Netscape windows until I restart X.

Does anyone else have this problem?  I am running Netscape 4.6-1, but
the same thing happened with the Redhat shipped  version.

Thanks!

1. Caldera 2.2 and Logitech First Mouse + (w/ Wheel) and MS Wheel Mouse

Sorry that I am posting this question to a few groups.  I need to get the
answer ASAP for a reason ....

I am using Caldera 2.2.  Somehow I can never get the wheel on my Logitech
First Mouse+ to work.  In XF86Setup, I can't find the appropriate driver for
it.  Is there a driver for it at all?  However, choosing MouseManPlus PS/2
seems to allow the mouse to work fine except the wheel is being ignored.

Also, I tried to switch to the MS Wheel mouse (the cheaper one, not
IntelliMouse), and tried to choose IntelliMouse as the driver.  The mouse
behaves like crazy!  Is this not an appropriate driver for it?  Where can I
find a driver for MS Wheel mouse?

Thanks very much in advance.

Patrick.
