I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction towards getting my scroll wheel to work in PC-BSD. I have modified my Xfree86.config file and got my video, display, and keyboard to work but, the scroll wheel on the mouse just won't go. The mouse I have is a Micro$oft PS/2 (corded) mouse on a KVM switch. This is for my work computer or else the mouse would not have been Micro$oft.
In your xorg config file, do you have something like the following?
Option "Protocol" "Auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
Option "Buttons" "6"
Option "zAxisMapping" "4 5"
The Options for buttons and zaxismapping do the magic. I don't think I need "6" but it works fine. Note that some of your other options may differ.
How I can edit the /dev/sysmouse file to fix the crazy moves of the mouse.
I found a topic about this mouse problem but i dnot know how I can edit this file.
You don't edit /dev/sysmouse. It is one of the mouse drivers, but it might not be the right one for you. There are many others. What mouse are you using? And what are the "crazy moves" you describe?
When i Try to move the mouse this move out of my control and then open windows. I cant take control of the mouse. all the time the mouse stay in the right side of the screen.
I have a Labtec mouse, Celeron 1.8ghz, 512mb PC133, 40Gb IDE and sharing memory of 32mb to vga. a KVM switch 4 port zonet.
But the kvm maybe is not a problem because in my office I install PCbsd whitout problem and de PC is a p3 700mhz and 256mb pc133 sharing vga 32mb.
Is the mouse PS/2 or USB? Also, would you open a terminal window execute "dmesg" (without the quotes)? Find the part about the mouse -- it is a long list.
