    getting a 7 button wheel mouse to work


    the two buttons work with click and drag ability but the wheel still doesn't work.

    I am using slackware 11.0 with kernal 2.4.33.3

    it is a razor diamond back mouse.

    my /etc/X11/xorg.conf looks like this
    Identifier "mouse1"
    Driver "mouse"

    I've added these to it with no luck.
    Option "Buttons" "7"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"

    anything else i need to add?

    Had you previously tried "4 5" as the options for the wheel, or are these used by the other buttons?
