Could anybody please tell me how I can have the use of the mousewheel of my serial mouse?
Posted by piccolo on Mar. 26 2006,20:11Have you tried to execute Xsetup.sh?
If not, you can read: < http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/index.php/Xsetup.sh >

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.

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 xsetup.sh 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.....

Posted by safesys on Mar. 27 2006,16:39If 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"
