HowTo - Enable Logitech mouse wheel in Slackware 9.1
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.
