I have a basic optical wheel mouse (white & grey, 2-button + wheel). The scroll function operates when I roll the wheel, the wheel-click works for opening a link in a new tab, but the document / webpage wheel-click scroll-lock function does not work to move within a document / page. When I check the settings, in Ubuntu, for the mouse there are no options for the wheel.
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.
Have a user on a Solaris 10 sunray CDE environment her mouse wheel will not scroll up or down in windows it will paste but not scroll. Other users logged into sunray have no issues with mouse wheel. Any ideas on what the fix could be?
My month old Acer needs to go home for a repair to whatever is causing a bright vertical line in the screen so I dusted off the old G72 and ran a yum update on it since I hadn't used it in a couple of weeks.
Everything works fine except the scroll wheel on my Microsoft 4000 wireless mouse. The wheel is hypersensitive.
