Mouse scroll wheel problem

Post by Anithen N » Sun, 29 Jun 2003 14:10:39



I don't know how to adjust the settings so that I can use my mouse wheel.
 I'm running rh 7.3.  My mouse is HP, 2 button, one wheel.  Maybe it's
called a ps2.  
        I'm SICK and tired of not being able to use it...just using it to paste.

This is for the M$ Intellimouse, might work for HP:

- Get out of X and into the console as root.

- Fire up your favorite editor and call the file /etc/X11/XF86Config, or
wherever it is in RH.

- Go to the Core Pointer's InputDevice section.

- At the end of the options, type in <Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5">
without the "<>".

- Save the file and restart X.

Here's the complete specification for an M$ Intellimouse:

# Identifier and driver

    Identifier  "Mouse1"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option "Protocol"     "IMPS/2"
    Option "Device"       "/dev/psaux"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

Luck.

Thank you very much; however, that didn't work with me.  This isn't a M$
intellimouse.  It is, I believe, a regular HP mouse that came with the HP
computer.  When I installed this distro on a different box at school, the
mouse automatically enabled the use of the mouse wheel.  For this mouse
it isn't like that.
        Again, even though it didn't work, I thank you.
Since it automatically worked after installation on a different system,
there must be a way to do this without installing imwheel, yes?  My logic
is that the other computer didn't have imwheel, so why should this
better, newer computer?

1. Problem with high-speed mouse-wheel scrolling in X

Hi,

Does anyone else have this problem, and is there a fix?
Google searches turned up nothing.

In all scroll-wheel-enabled X-apps, if the mouse scroll wheel
is moved too quickly, scrolling occurs in small jumps with
a number of seconds pause between each jump, during which X
locks up.  It's as if there is a problem with some mouse
driver when its buffer overflows.

It's annoying to remember to always scroll slowly, or
else sit there twiddling your thumbs for ten seconds or
more while the scrolling completes.

I'm running Kernel 2.4.9, XFree 4.0.3, A4Tech 4D cordless
mouse (IMPS/2 protocol).

Thanks -- Mark
