    Edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf or xfree86.conf depending on what you have.

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
            Identifier  "Mouse0"
            Driver      "mouse"
            Option      "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
            Option      "Device" "/dev/psaux"
            Option      "Buttons" "5"
            Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    EndSection
    That works w/ my mouse. Enjoy

    My mouse has two buttons and a wheel. but must be configured "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" Your wheel in the centre of the mouse counts as 2 buttons. So if you have two buttons on the top, a wheel and say two buttons on the side your config should look like this "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
