    I don't know, I allways thought that IMPS/2 was standard when you used scroller, oh well. But only PS/2 can't scroll, I've experienced that myself..

    My trackball is USB, so I don't think that USB is the key...maybe manufacturers? Mine is a M$.

    This might be wrong, but what I think is that USB or PS/2 mouses can use explore2fs or something, or imps/2, while eg. serial mouses must use something else.. its just a theory, so don't rely on it

    It's my understanding that imps/2 is for the "Intellimouse." But it also works for a plethora of other mouse manufacturers, and more than one touchpad.

    ymmv,

    Thank you sarumont!

    After googling for [gentoo mouse wheel not working] I found this forum and fixed my mouse wheel in under 60 seconds. It took me longer to register so I could post a reply to thank you, but it's worth it for a fellow Eclipse & Gentoo user.

    Thanks again!

    I have an HP USB mouse that works, but the scroll button does not. I've tried ExplorerPS/2 and IMPS with no luck. I don't remember ever having two mouse entries in XFree, which may be my problem. I'm using Debian Sarge:

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
            Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
            Driver          "mouse"
            Option          "CorePointer"
            Option          "Device"                "/dev/input/mice"
            Option          "Protocol"              "ExplorerPS/2"
            Option          "Emulate3Buttons"       "true"
            Option          "ZAxisMapping"          "4 5"
    EndSection
    Section "InputDevice"
            Identifier      "Generic Mouse"
            Driver          "mouse"
            Option          "SendCoreEvents"        "true"
            Option          "Device"                "/dev/input/mice"
            Option          "Protocol"              "ExplorerPS/2"
            Option          "Buttons"               "5"
            Option          "Emulate3Buttons"       "true"
            Option          "ZAxisMapping"          "4 5"
    TIA

    Sorry for the bump but I've tried re-configuring xfree several times now without success. Would someone mind taking a look at the post above and give me a hint as to what I'm doing wrong? My mouse works but the scroll functionality does not: HP USB/Optical mouse.

    Tnx,
    bd

    I can't say too much as I'm still dealing with a problematic scrollmouse, but just a thought from what you pasted. Have you tried removing the Emulate3Buttons line? I'm assuming you really do have three buttons or else you would not need to emulate three. I don't know if this would interfere or not, but it might be worth trying.

    I'll assume you're referring to me there. You're quite welcome but I feel I must tell you that I'm not an Eclipse user...the icon just makes a sweet avatar.
