I have a 2 button + scroll wheel ps2 mouse(HP). the 2 buttons are working fine. but the scroll wheel is not working. things don't scroll at all.
I have read the forums help, but still cannot get it to work.
in Xsetup , I had chosen yes for "Wheelmice use Imps/2 protocol", I have gone there and redone the setup at least 50 times, and then restarted "startx", hoping it will work at some point but it never did .
when I do dmest | grep -i mouse, I get the following:-
root@box:~# dmesg | grep -i mouse
<6>mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice
the scroll wheel works in pasting though. when I copy something and then press on the scroll wheel it pastes.
Looks like only the scrolling doesn't work.
can anyone help ? why does the xsetup not work ? Is there any file that I can tweak manually to get it working ?
