Sub_title: ScrollWheel Emulation
 

Hello *!

I've tested the following with puppy versions: 5.1.0, 5.0.0, 4.3.1, 4.2, 4.1.2, 4.1.1
To enable the scroll wheel emulation (known from the windows driver) i've done the following:

1. Open /etc/X11/xorg.conf (i.e. with the Geany Editor)

2. find section for the mouse setup
..something similar to:
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
   Driver "mouse"
   Identifier "Mouse0"
   Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"


3. Add the following entries to the mouse setup section
Variant 1 - use vertical scrolling only
Code:
   Option "Emulate3Buttons"     "on"
   Option "Emulate3TimeOut"     "50"
   Option "EmulateWheel"        "on"
   Option "EmulateWheelTimeOut" "200"
   Option "EmulateWheelButton"  "2"
   Option "ZAxisMapping"        "4 5"

Variant 2 - vertical + horizontal scrolling
Code:
   Option "Emulate3Buttons"     "on"
   Option "Emulate3TimeOut"     "50"
   Option "EmulateWheel"        "on"
   Option "EmulateWheelTimeOut" "200"
   Option "EmulateWheelButton"  "2"
   Option "ZAxisMapping"        "4 5"
   Option "YAxisMapping"        "4 5"
   Option "XAxisMapping"        "6 7"

In addition you have to change settings for seamonkey (and/or) firefox (because horizontal scrolling uses forward/backward button)
==> enter about:config in address line and modify the following
Code:
   mousewheel.horizscroll.withnokey.action = 0;
   mousewheel.horizscroll.withnokey.numlines = 1;

4. Menu->Shutdown->Restart X server

Done.
