    Yes it does.

    Look between the commented lines ( # )

    This is how I mobifyd my xorg.conf.

    I suggest you do the same.

    Balded lines are those what I commented.
    After that, I moved those together the other mouseconfig part.

    Section "InputDevice"

    # Identifier and driver

    Identifier "Mouse1"
    Driver "mouse"

    # On platforms where PnP mouse detection is supported the following
    # protocol setting can be used when using a newer PnP mouse:
    # Next line is commented afterwards and moved down

    # Option "Protocol" "Auto"

    # The available mouse protocols types that you can set below are:
    # Auto BusMouse GlidePoint GlidePointPS/2 IntelliMouse IMPS/2
    # Logitech Microsoft MMHitTab MMSeries Mouseman MouseManPlusPS/2
    # MouseSystems NetMousePS/2 NetScrollPS/2 OSMouse PS/2 SysMouse
    # ThinkingMouse ThinkingMousePS/2 Xqueue
    # Next line is commented afterwards and moved down

    # Option "Protocol" "PS/2"

    # The mouse device. The device is normally set to /dev/mouse,
    # which is usually a symbolic link to the real device.

    Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
    Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    # Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
    # Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS1"
    # Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"

    This also solved my problem with the wheel on my Microsoft Intellimouse Optical (both the small and regular versions) not working. Just adding the Zaxismapping was not enough, it did not work until I changed the protocol to IMPS/2 (was originally set to PS/2, auto did not help, intellimouse just made the pointer go crazy.

    i had the same problems.....

    first try i had my usb mouse plugged into the ps/2 port, and no matter what option i choose, the mouse would fly all over the screen and randomly click buttons, even though i wasn't, so i removed the usb-to-ps/2 adapter and plugged the mouse directly into usb. had several problems using protocol usbmouse and intellimouse and microsoft, but it worked perfectly fine after adjusting it to IMPS/2. the only problem is that no matter what i've tried, i also am completely unable to get my mouse wheel to work at all, i've tried ZAxisMapping "4 5" and even "5 6", and got to the point where i even bothered to throw in Option "Buttons" "5" before the ZAxisMapping option, and still have yet to get it to work with no avail.

    on the flip side, using slack10 with xorg6.8.1 instead of 6.8.2, ZAxisMapping worked right away, so i'm blaming my losses on 6.8.2 atm, until i figure out how to get this working

    update::: after spending countless hours trying to figure out why my scrollwheel would work on one machine and not work on the other, i found out that there is a usb legacy mouse support in my bios that had to be 'disabled' in order for the scrollwheel to be recognized correctly. so for the ppl having similar problems in which they added the correct lines to their xorg.conf file for their scrollwheel, double check you bios and make sure you don't have a similar option enabled

    I had the problem with my logitech optical usb mouse, fixed it by using the ps2 adapter. But is there a way that i can use the wheel too? Because that would be cool..

    have you tried adding this
    Code:
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

    I have an intellimouse optical with the side buttons too.
    It is a bit of a $^$ to keep set up.
    I unplugged from the ps2 adapter and plugged it in as a USB device.
    Rebooted.
    I then opened the MMC (I am on mandrake 10.1) and rediscovered the mouse with the hardrake. choosing the usb option. Pants though that didn't help.
    I then plugged it back in with the ps2 adapter and went through the motions again of choosing the ps2>> other>>microsoft explorer device.
    Then while the mmc was still open I chose mouse from the devices window (not the hardware section) then chose the same ps2>>other>>microsoft explorer, and then rebooted.
    Scroll works.
    Back and forward side browsing buttons work.
    This is the relevant entry from my /etc/x11/xorg.config (or whatever) file:
    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier "Mouse1"
        Driver "mouse"
        Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
        Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
        Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
    EndSection

    I got my wheel to work with
    Driver "mouse"
    Identifier "Mouse1"
    Option "Buttons" "5"
    Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
    Option "Name" "Autodetection"
    Option "Protocol" "explorerps/2"
    Option "Vendor" "Sysp"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    it was the Option "Vendor" "Sysp" that got me going with the scroll wheel, I hope this helps.
