You probably need to say you have 7 buttons: the five physical buttons, and two more for the wheel up/down events. Try setting ZAxisMapping to "6 7". I don't know if X is hardcoded to think buttons 4 and 5 are wheel buttons or not. If it is, you can shuffle the button mappings around with moused -m. moused -df (console) and xev (X) are handy for debugging button and wheel problems. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
