HowTo - Enable Logitech mouse wheel in Slackware 9.1
In hopes of helping other who might have the same type of config as me ...
For some time now I've not been able to get my Logitech wheel mouse (PS/2) wheel to work on Slackware 9.1.
I wasn't able to directly find information pertaining to my mouse and OS, so I did a little playing (logic use of other configs).
Here's what I did:
In the /etc/X11/XF86Config file (in the mouse (Core Pointer's Input Device section)):
Uncommented the following line
Option "Protocol" "Auto"
Added the following line
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

Just to elaborate for those with this trouble.
the settings need to go in your X config file often called something like /etc/X11/XF86Config
you locate the section for you mouse and make sure it has the Zaxis setting. A snippet from my config is shown below.
Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2" Option "Device" "/dev/psaux" Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no" EndSectionNo trees were harmed during the creation of this message. Its made from a blend of elephant tusk and dolphin meat.
