I have a ps2 keyboard that has a scroll wheel on the side, it doesn't work on Ubuntu 12.04 so I though to just check xev and map the correct key. But xev doesn't show up anything when moving the scroll wheel.
The keyboard is this one (A4Tech KBS-26), it works fine on Windows without adding any extra driver. On linux most buttons work, multimedia, calculator, browser, etc.
I often use the mouse wheel instead of the window scroll handles to move up/down a document or list. When using most apps (Firefox, LibreOffice, Gramps, etc) the scroll handle moves downward and document or list moves upward when I push the mouse wheel forward. Similarly, when the wheel is pulled back the scroll handle moves upward and the doc or list moves downward.
I am using a Microsoft Comfort Optical Mouse 3000. When I boot Windows 7, the scroll wheel can be used to scroll horizontally just by pushing it to the left or right. Doing this in Ubuntu just scrolls the page up and down, which is kind of redundant. How can I make the wheel scroll sideways?
(Note: I am not talking about clicking the middle button and scrolling that way.)

Hello, I am pretty new to linux and I decided to install Crunchbang just two days ago. I managed to configure it to my tastes, the only bit I didn't manage to fix yet is the wheel mouse. All I want to do is being able to scroll pages while I am holding the mouse wheel pushed + up/down mouse movement.
Is there a way to adjust the mouse wheel scroll sensitivity in Fedora 18?
I'm running Fedora 18, with the standard Gnome desktop. I use a Logitech M705 mouse with the free-scrolling mouse wheel, which I love. In windows, I'm able to configure how many lines to scroll per notch of the mouse wheel.
