I've searched the web, I've upgraded, downgraded, tweaked configs, changed use flags and I'm stumped. The most recent posts I could find online about the subject are a couple of years old.

It's a standard 3-button logitech usb mouse. The scroll wheel works in Linux and MacOSX (Mac Mini). Right and left clicks work in mol but the scroll wheel doesn't and the option that relates to the scroll wheel in the keyboard/mouse config window in OSX is absent in mol. Any ideas?

I'm currently running the latest masked version (0.9.71_pre3) with use flags fbcon, usb, X, alsa and /etc/mol/molrc.input (or whatever that file is named) has the mouse device as /dev/input/mice. The kernel is gentoo-sources-2.6.12-r10.

Hi,
In your /etc/X11/xorg.conf
check that

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mouse0"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"


the option in bold is activated

Yes, I have that option in my xorg.conf. As I said the scroll wheel is working fine in linux.

I think it's because of the MOL input driver. I'm not sure if I can add support for mouse wheels without breaking anything else, but I'll take a look. Another option is to plug in the mouse when Linux doesn't have a driver for it, MOL should see it as a native device.

You mean choose between scroll working in mol but no mouse in Linux or mouse w/scroll in Linux and mouse w/out scroll in mol? And do you mean I'd have to remove mouse support from the kernel?

Yes, that's what I mean. No, you wouldn't have to take out scroll support in your kernel, you would just have to unload the module after it's loaded (in linux) or blacklist it to prevent it from loading.
