Does it work at all at any time?
Has your system correctly identified the mouse and loaded any other driver if needed?

Well, you'll need to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf to tell X that you have a scrollwheel. Use your favorite editor to open xorg.conf and look for >Section InputDevice<
Add this line >Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"<
So that it looks like this:
Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "auto" Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice" Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" EndSectionCan't tell an OS by it's GUI

Oh yeah, and rightfully so. Better make a backup of the original file
xorg.conf is the configuration file for the X graphical environment. Messing it up leaves you with a machine that can't boot into graphics anymore. But as this maneuver is as easy as copy&paste you'll be fine.Can't tell an OS by it's GUI
