I tried a number of the tricks described here but a simple “Sweex” 3 (or 5) button mouse does not process any input from the mousewheel. It may seem a trivial problem but it complete tanks my productivity. If any body has a suggestion I would be very happy.
the mouse worked in Suse 10.3
it does not work in 11
it is a optical three button Sweex mouse with a mouse wheel on top (so I guess that makes it a 5 button mouse)
do you happen to have another mouse with a scroll wheel to try?
Failing that try using another mouse type in the setup, Logitech or M$, or something with wheel and see if that takes care of the problem. Also if you happen to have another computer handy try it on there. it might be that the wheel has failed for some reason…
