    Look up the InputDevice section for the mouse in /etc/X11/XF86Config. What does it look like?

    Here's the mouse section

    Section "InputDevice"
    Driver "mouse"
    Identifier "Mouse[1]"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "Name" "Autodetection"
    Option "Protocol" "imps/2"
    Option "Vendor" "Sysp"
    EndSection

    Try adding the following line before the EndSection line. Then restart the X server.
    Code:
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
