# Identifier and driver

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

With this configuration in xf86config, my mouse look like creasy. I have to use "PS/2" to control my mouse but I can't use the whell.

Very weird....a couple of suggestions I hope help.

Change IMPS/2 to imps/2

also, if you can use your mouse on usb, then plug it in on usb...usually comes up as /dev/input/mouse0

However, that configuration (with the exception of the imps case) is exactly what I'm running with a Wheel Mouse. I am running it on USB, but that configuration worked on ps/2 also.

I'm pretty sure you have a PS/2 mouse since you have /dev/psaux, if you had a USB mouse that wouldn't work...you might want to use just PS/2 instead of IMPS/2...maybe that'll help, I'm not so sure because I'm fairly new to Linux :) But try it.

Sometimes disabling gpm will solve this exact problem...
(Means: using IMPS/2 will work without crazy mouse)

I think so. My Suggestion (c) is to disable GPM, use imps/2 and Buttons 5.
