Hi Piccolo,

Yes I read it and I selected the COM1 option. Then I chose the 2 mouse  buttons option and later on 3 mouse buttons option, since I'm not sure if the scrollwheel counts as a button or not, but neither setup worked.

The mouse has 1 button that functions.

Greetings, Diogenes

Hi Diogenes
Surely anyone had the same problem
You can search on this forum, for example keywords: mouse AND serial.
This is result:
< >
Also remember: If you ran from bash will not take your changes until restart X. If so, exit X (ALT+CTR+BACKSPACE) and type "startx" to start the server.
I hope is help

I tried it all, but it doesn't work: I can right click and left click, but there's no scroll wheel.

I only see "2" or "3" button mouse in the setup menu, but nowhere I'm asked if there's a scroll wheel.

So no scroll wheel for me yet.....

Greets, Diogenes

Diogenes must not surrender, an wheelmouse working in DSL not is impossible. Please read this post: < >

If you plan on using XFree86 you can try adding a directive in the XF86Config-4 file in the InputDevice section for the mouse of:

Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
