Full Version: Switched To Suse, Mouse Not Working
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
i switched from Core 2 to SUSE 9.1 (just out of curiosity) and everything seems to be OK (got my DSL working, this is most important to me) except for the mouse:

it is a Logitech USB cordless optical mouse with the scroll wheel; in Fedora Core 2 it worked perfectly fine, in SUSE the scroll wheel does not work, even though I selected wheeled mouse at installation;

so what needs to be done to enable the scroll wheel in SUSE;

thanks for any help

Editing SUSE config files by hand is kind of iffy ... Is it 9.1 personal OR 9.1 pro?

What you need is the following line in the /etc/X11/XF86Config file (in the mouse section):
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

But editing the file by hand in SuSE can cause problems ... so run the programs:


and see if you can configure the mouse from in there.
ok, mouse is running (after just 5 reboots; go figure); but DSL drops connection like crazy;

going back to Core 2 :-)

thank you anyway
