    3 button scroll mouse not working properly in x!


    hi. i have a 3 button scroll mouse and in x it only recognizes it as a 2 button mouse, i assume i probably didnt specify it correctly when i configured x, but xf86config and xf86setup dont exist and i tried to just edit the x.conf file by hand and i dont think i did it right, so if somebody could tell me how to edit it correctly or give me other instructions it would be greatly appreciated

    How does your Mouse section in your xorg.conf looks like?

    No, it doesn't really matter where you add it, as long as it is in the Mouse section of course.
