    M$ IntelliMouse Optical

    I got a new mouse for christmas, it's a USB mouse, but i'm using the adapter to use it through PS/2 because for some reason it woulnd't work for usb under windows. Anywho, it works alright with this configuration:

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
            Identifier  "PS/2 Mouse"
            Driver      "mouse"
            Option      "Protocol" "PS/2"
            Option      "Device" "/dev/psaux"
            Option      "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
            Option      "Emulate3Timeout" "70"
            Option      "SendCoreEvents"  "true"
    EndSection
    Now this works, but I don't have wheelmouse or the side buttons working. I then tried to changing the Prococol to "IntelliMouse" but then when i started X the mouse would just jump all over the place a be completely useless.

    How can I get my scrollwheel (and optionally the side buttons) to work. The side buttons aren't too important, once I get it working I'll just try out the PET for that.

    okay for the wheel use the ZAxisMapping to what I have and use the buttons variable. Then use as a command to remap the buttons. Here is what I got :

    XF86Config
    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Mouse0"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option    "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
    Option    "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option     "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
    Option      "Buttons" "7"
    Option    "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
    and them put

    Code:
    xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5"
    into your /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc file

    I now have it working, scrollwheel, and side buttons even! Here's the snippit from XF86config:

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
            Identifier  "PS/2 Mouse"
            Driver      "mouse"
            Option      "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
            Option      "Device" "/dev/psaux"
            Option      "Buttons" "7"
            Option      "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
    EndSection
    And the side buttons work because of the wonderful PET. Thanks Schotty.
