    Scroll mouse and Screen resolution


    Hi all,

    I have a brand new HP Compaq cd 7600 sff pc. with

    logitech USB Optical Scroll mouse (physically I see 3 buttons including the scroll wheel) my xorg.conf is as following (omitting the comments)

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
    
    # Identifier and driver
    
        Identifier  "Mouse1"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
        Option "Protocal"    "ImPS/2"
        Option "Buttons"        "5"
        Option "ZAxisMapping"   "4 5"
        Option "Device"      "/dev/input/mice"
    
        Option "Emulate3Buttons"    "Yes"
        Option "Emulate3Timeout"    "50"
    
    EndSection
    the mouse itself is working but the scroll wheel does not scroll ...

    can anybody help with this..


    second ... I have a DELL TFT monitor which on another windows machine supports upto 1152x864 resolution, but on this new machine which obviously has more powerful graphics card, shows only resolution upto 1024x768.... the monitor section in the xorg.conf is as following..
    Code:
    Section "Monitor"
    
        Identifier  "My Monitor"
    
    # HorizSync is in kHz unless units are specified.
    # HorizSync may be a comma separated list of discrete values, or a
    # comma separated list of ranges of values.
    # NOTE: THE VALUES HERE ARE EXAMPLES ONLY.  REFER TO YOUR MONITOR'S
    # USER MANUAL FOR THE CORRECT NUMBERS.
    
        HorizSync   31.5 - 50.0
    
    #    HorizSync  30-64         # multisync
    #    HorizSync  31.5, 35.2    # multiple fixed sync frequencies
    #    HorizSync  15-25, 30-50  # multiple ranges of sync frequencies
    
    # VertRefresh is in Hz unless units are specified.
    # VertRefresh may be a comma separated list of discrete values, or a
    # comma separated list of ranges of values.
    # NOTE: THE VALUES HERE ARE EXAMPLES ONLY.  REFER TO YOUR MONITOR'S
    # USER MANUAL FOR THE CORRECT NUMBERS.
    
        VertRefresh 40-90
    
    EndSection

    I think your scroll wheel's not working because you have the emulate3buttons enabled. That's only for people who don't have the scroll wheel. For the screen resolution, there's an area to specify screen resolution in xorg.conf. You should find it no problem, it's pretty self-explanitory.

    emulate3buttons does not make any differ.Your mouse scroll does not work since in your xorg file it is written
    Code:
    Option "Protocal"    "ImPS/2"
    and it must be
    Code:
    Option "Protocol"    "ImPS/2"
    with o.

    And for your resolution problem see
    Code:
    Subsection "Display"
            Depth       8
            Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubsection
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       16
            Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubsection
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       24
            Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubsection
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       32
            Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubsection
    
    EndSection
