These are my mouse settings in /etc/X11/XF86Config
I generally need to run sax2 from from runlevel 3 to get it to set up
the mouse properly, but hand editing always works.
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "Device" "/dev/pointer0"
Option "Name" "Autodetection"
Option "Protocol" "imps/2"
Option "Vendor" "Sysp"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

Last night I installed SuSe with KDE on my box--my first time with
distro, I've been a Slackware holdout for close to ten years.
I also have a MS optical mouse, which works just fine and dandy except
for the friggin' scroll wheel, which doesn't do anything. I never
realized just how handy that little bugger was until I couldn't use it
The "Mouse settings" in Control Center don't seem to do the trick,
though it does recognize the wheel. (It has a "Mouse scroll wheel
Anyone have any idea how to get it working?
P.S. I'd like to reconfigure the buttons on the side, too--in Windoze,
one pushes a browser forward, the other back.
