    Edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config (or /etc/X11/XF86Config-4) file and post the InputDevice section for your.

    It should look something like the following (for a scroll mouse):

    Section "InputDevice" 
    # Identifier and driver 
      Identifier "Mouse1" 
      Driver "mouse" 
      Option "Device" "/dev/mouse" 
    # The available mouse protocols types that you can set below are: 
    # Auto BusMouse GlidePoint GlidePointPS/2 IntelliMouse IMPS/2 
    # Logitech Microsoft MMHitTab MMSeries Mouseman MouseManPlusPS/2 
    # MouseSystems NetMousePS/2 NetScrollPS/2 OSMouse PS/2 SysMouse 
    # ThinkingMouse ThinkingMousePS/2 Xqueue 
      Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2" 
    # Emulate3Buttons is an option for 2-button Microsoft mice 
    # Emulate3Timeout is the timeout in milliseconds (default is 50ms) 
    # Option "Emulate3Buttons" 
    # Option "Emulate3Timeout" "50" 
    # ZAxisMapping is an option for scroll button
      Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
