Configuring Logitech LX6 in openSUSE 11.2


I’d like to get the scroll wheel’s left and right tilting to work in firefox (go back and forward one page). A lot of the forums suggest ways to do this with xorg.conf, but I see that it’s been removed in 11.2. The only mouse support in Yast is this “text console mouse model” thing- what is that?? At any rate, it doesn’t have Logitech LX or MX series mice in its list.

Any suggestions for getting this to work? Am I going to have to create an xorg.conf file, and what will break if I do?

Any ideas what the direction is for Logitech mice in openSUSE? It sure would be great to have better support for mice in this distro.
(BTW, I’m running KDE)
