For a little over 2 grand Australian you to can sit in front of the tele on Sunday nights playing out F1 fantasies with your very own full scale Ferrari 150° Italia Steering Wheel as used by Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa in the 2011 F1 Championship.
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 just received a logitech trackball (T-BC21) and it all works fine out of the box except the wheel-scrolling emulation (the trackball doesn't have a wheel).
I had a good look around and came across a few sites.
