    Slackware 10.1 - weird scroll problem


    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
    
    # Identifier and driver
    
       Identifier "Mouse1"
       Driver "mouse"
    #   Option "Protocol"    "PS/2"
       Option "Protocol"    "IMPS/2"
    #   Option "Device"      "/dev/mouse"
       Option "Device"      "/dev/psaux"
       Option "Resolution" "300"
       Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
       Option "Buttons" "3"
    logitech mx510 - it scrolls down but not up with the mouse wheel. Above is my xorg file on my mouse. I've been searching high and low for a solution.

    Anyone ever run into this?? - I had the similar problem with Slackware 10.0 and was hoping 10.1 would fix that.

    Have you tried:

    Code:
    Option "ZAxisMapping"  "5 6"

    You should experiment with this option and set "4 5" to another value it depends on how many buttons you have on your mouse.

    I think that this is the problem. You are trying to scroll with buttons 4 and 5 and you state that you have only 3 buttons. I assume that you should try
    Code:
       Option "Buttons" "5"
