I have an AOpen O-35G scroll mouse (It has dual scroll wheels with the left one clicking). Unfortunately, I've been unable to get the scroll buttons to work under X. I've used the IMPS/2 option with ZAxisMapping but my mouse jumps around the screen like it would if I specified the wrong options.

Does anyone have one of these mice and have it working?

Thanks

I too was having difficulty with getting my aopen mouse to work correctly and this is how I have it setup currently. I have not tested the setup much but the top scrollwheel is working correctly. The scrollwheel button is also working correctly. Here is what I did...

In my XF86Config file:
under the InputDevice I set

Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Buttons" "9"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7 8 9"

and then put the following in xinitrc (or something similar that will ensure the line gets run):
xmodmap -e 'pointer = 1 2 3 8 9 4 5 6 7'

I got this from the following webpage...

Good luck...
