    Question Apple's Magic Mouse scrolling not working in RHEL 6


    I'm running Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) Workstation release 6.4 (Santiago) and kernel 2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.x86_64. The list of loaded kernel modules is shown below.

    Although Apple's Magic Mouse is correctly connected via Bluetooth and the right and left buttons are working as expected, the scrolling does not work.

    What should I do to make it work?

    Please let me know if I need to add more details from some configuration file (e.g. X11).

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello and Welcome!
    I don't use bluetooth devices, nor am I very familiar with the Magic Mouse, so I'm afraid that I don't have much to suggest.
    This might seem like a silly question, but does the scroll work with other computers or OSs?
    If not, then there may be a bit of debris in the scroll wheel.
    If it does work, then perhaps you can re-pair the mouse.

    Yes, it does.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I've tried that a couple of times already, didn't make any difference.
