    Enabling scroll mouse in RedHat 7.3 problem!

    Hi

    Any of you guys help me on this one cos at the minute im stumped

    Im using RedHat 7.3 and im trying to get my MS Wheel Mouse working so that i can copy/paste text in the terminal and also scroll pages.

    Ive changed the InputDevice section in my XF86Config-4 file to the following

    Code:
     Section "InputDevice"                                               
                        Identifier  "mouse"                                     
                        Driver      "mouse"                                     
                        Option      "Protocol" "IMPS/2"                         
                        Option      "Device" "/dev/psaux"                       
                        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"                        
            EndSection
    Then saved the file but no joy!

    As i said im stumped, so any help would be great!

    Cheers

    If you installed XFree86-Version 4.0, the configuration has to look like


    File /etc/X11/XF86Config
    Code:
    
      Section "InputDevice"
          Identifier "Mouse"
          Driver     "mouse"
          Option "Protocol"        "imps/2"
          Option "Device"          "/dev/psaux"
          Option "ZAxisMapping"    "4 5"
          Option "Buttons"         "3"
      EndSection
    I'm finding the same thing as you. Have you restarted the Xserver?
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.
