Hi guys,I have an a4tech wineasy 4d mouse,it has 2 wheels (one for vertical scrolling and other for horizontal scrolling) and 3 buttons (2 "normal" and one on the left side,but can't get the right xorg config to enable scrolling..
On xorg page I found this config:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "WinEasy"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
EndSection

but,first,I have to use protocol microsoft (because it is connect on a COM port via an PS2 adapter) and seccond,when I put the option "Buttons" "7" and restart xorg,it won't go..
I tried that example,without the "Buttons" option,but no scroll..
Any suggestions?
This is the mouse:

Have you tried this?
Code:
 Option "Protocol" "Auto"

Also try
Code:
 Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
or even some of the other ones in the comment in this post

I only have one scroll wheel, but my setup is like this:
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
   Identifier  "Mouse0"
   Driver      "mouse"
   Option       "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2" #mouse0protocol
   Option       "Device" "/dev/mouse"
   #Option      "Emulate3Buttons"
   #Option      "Emulate3Timeout" "50"
    Option     "Buttons" "7"
   Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" #scrollwheel
EndSection

I'd guess yours should look something like this:
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
   Identifier  "Mouse0"
   Driver      "mouse"
   Option       "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2" #mouse0protocol
   Option       "Device" "/dev/mouse"
   #Option      "Emulate3Buttons"
   #Option      "Emulate3Timeout" "50"
    Option     "Buttons" "7"
   Option    "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"#scrollwheelVertical
      Option    "YAxisMapping" "6 7" #scrollwheelHorizontal
EndSection


I'm really not sure about the "YAxisMapping" I know 6 and 7 scroll horizontally, but I would think you'd need two separate options to have both Vertical and Horizontal scrolling; like I say I know 6 and 7 work for horizontal scrolling, just not sure if they should be mapped to YAxisMapping? Maybe it should be XAxisMapping? But I'd think they'd have separate options. Any who, just my two cents, hope it helps.

Edit: I've just ran a little test to see if YAxisMapping would work, it does, but the weird thing is it will only scroll vertically no matter which numbers are placed after it. So I would suggest adding this:
Code:
Option    "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"#scrollwheelHorizontal
Option    "YAxisMapping" "4 5" #scrollwheelVertical
to get your scrolling working.

Does the code above not work then?

I wouldn't necessarily say it was a bug, unless you're talking about the 4.2 main release? (and even then, it may not have been implemented yet in 4.2?) Maybe there's is a mouse driver that is present in 4.3.1 but not in the 4.2 puplets? If that were the case then you should be able to import that driver from 4.3.1? The thing with puplets is that they are made by us, for us. So things that are in the main release are not automatically in the puplets. If you still have 4.3.1 and can compare the drivers, you may find something, then you can just copy it over. Also there is a program in Puppy that can compare files and I think it compares filesystems as well. That could be useful and save you some time searching, but I'm not very familiar with it, and I'm not even sure of its name? Ultimately the best thing to do is to find out why it works well in 4.3.1 and copy over what you need for it to work in the puplet.
Code:
lsmod
Will show you all the modules you have loaded so you could compare 4.2 and 4.3.1 to see what's different?

Ah, you should have told us that.

If so, you wouldn't be able to copy it... you would need to get the kernel source and the devx and compile it... assuming it was available for the 4.2 kernel.
