How to enable mouse wheel in arch??
I have a PS/2 mouse with 2 buttons and a mouse wheel used as 3-rd button.
should be as easy as throwing
# Get the wheel working Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
in the mouse section of the /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Section "InputDevice" # Identifier and driver Identifier "Mouse1" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "Auto" Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice" # Get the wheel working Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" # Mouse-speed setting for PS/2 mouse. # Option "Resolution" "256" # When using XQUEUE, comment out the above two lines, and uncomment # the following line. # Option "Protocol" "Xqueue" # Baudrate and SampleRate are only for some Logitech mice. In # almost every case these lines should be omitted. # Option "BaudRate" "9600" # Option "SampleRate" "150" # Emulate3Buttons is an option for 2-button Microsoft mice # Emulate3Timeout is the timeout in milliseconds (default is 50ms) Option "Emulate3Buttons" # Option "Emulate3Timeout" "50" # ChordMiddle is an option for some 3-button Logitech mice # Option "ChordMiddle" EndSection
hope that helps
Man, this comes up alot in forums and irc
Could someone put this in wiki.
I don't write to well

Pheobe: Not if I get there first.
I have a linux faq that covers this and other beginner questions. Sarah, if you see this, it isn't the forum that I was discussing on the mailing list, that was a FreeBSD forum.
(The faq is at http://home.nyc.rr.com/computertaijutsu/linfaq.html )
As I said on a mailing list, as one of those simple, everyone should know things, it seems to be one of the hardest things to find.
While ranting, I was discussing with a friend how most people know that in general, though not always SIGHUP will kill and restart a process. However, the only man page I saw that even hints at this was the OpenBSD thing. It's one of those things you pick up along the way.
