scrollwheel and Xorg

I tried Arch since yesterday and it's great so far...
only one minor/personal frustrating issue 8)

I have a Logitech optical standard USB scroll mouse, so nothing with fancy buttons
Just a left / right click and a clickable scroll wheel in the middle smile

For some reason I cant get this scroll wheel to work well, Xorg recognizes it in KDE correctly as a "middle click" if I click with the wheel but scrolling up
and down is impossible...

I have done some research but everywhere I find this

    Option "ZAxisMapping"   "4 5"

that I should add it into my xorg.conf  , but this line has been there for all the time in my conf...

let me give you the essential part of my xorg.conf

Section "InputDevice"

    Identifier  "Mouse1"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "Auto"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/input/mice"

    Option "ZAxisMapping"   "4 5"
    Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
EndSection

Is there something not right ? perhaps an option in KDE I am missing out?
I updated everything yesterday so I am probably working with that new Xorg 7...

Arch is great, this is the only problem I am left with
Any help is welcome!
(the mouse works in other distros so I guess it should be something I missed out)

Re: scrollwheel and Xorg

Option "Protocol"    "Auto"

doesn't work anymore.

You have to set the protocol manually now, like "IMPS/2".
(works with both my logitech MX-1000 and standard optical mouse)


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
