Mouse problems!!!

Hi guys!

I got a dockingstation for my IBM THinkpad R51 og connected a mouse to it. But I'm not able to scroll with the mouse. My dmesg says like this:
Probing IDE interface ide1...
logips2pp: Detected unknown logitech mouse model 1
input: PS/2 Logitech Mouse as /class/input/input1

and in the bottom of dmesg there' s a lot of :
Unable to query Synaptics hardware.
input: PS/2 Synaptics TouchPad as /class/input/input78
logips2pp: Detected unknown logitech mouse model 1
Unable to query Synaptics hardware.

What can I do about that  - and especially about getting the scroll to work???

Thanks

Re: Mouse problems!!!

Q: How can I set up my mouse scroll wheel in Xorg or XFree86?

A: This is done in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf or /etc/X11/XF86Config file. For most wheel mice, you simply have to add
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

to the Mouse section. For example:
  Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
  EndSection

Re: Mouse problems!!!

all that is done - the question is that is it special for a logitech mouse - and really special for a dockingstation???
I have a normal desktop - the same mouse works without any problems - and the setting are the same !  I have ZAxisMapping and everything else - BUT the only place where I got this error is when I use my dockingstation!!!

Re: Mouse problems!!!

Sorry for the late reply but I had one small suggestion.

I've got a laptop and found MUCH happier time since I started using synaptics driver for my touchpad and evdev for my mouse.  I can have my mouse plugged in, not in or even plug it in WHILE X is running and it just starts working - something I didn't expect at all.  Relevent bits:

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "X.org Configured"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        InputDevice    "Touchpad" "CorePointer"
        InputDevice    "Mouse0" "SendCoreEvents"
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Touchpad"
        Driver      "synaptics"
        Option      "Protocol" "auto-dev"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
.....SNIP - LOADS of config options.....
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "evdev"
        Option      "Name" "Logitech Optical USB Mouse"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

Oh and

cat /proc/bus/input/devices

is where I got the Logitech mouse name from.

Re: Mouse problems!!!

Not use names like this 'Logitech Optical USB Mouse'.
Install 'pacman -S hwd' if not installed and write 'hwd -xa' with root.
It ovewrite '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' file and crate new (http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ins … igure_xorg).

Re: Mouse problems!!!

wth, can someone just remove this tool as someone seems to believe it is a 'magic tool'. I don't like this stuff in linux... there's been far too many posts along the lines of "why doesn't X work? i've run hwd!!1 but still it doesn't work!!"

Re: Mouse problems!!!

@alikas,

hmm, I don't know, I seemed to get some pretty silly output from hwd -x.  The mouse settings were totally incorrect, along with video and other things.  I think it's just easier to read xorg.conf and driver man pages and tell it what YOU want.

IMHO that seems more like The Arch Waytm.

Re: Mouse problems!!!

lefallen,

this is SWEET indeed!

Please put this in the WIKI! (I have the feeling, that the xorg.conf article is outdated anyways).

Greetings,
