Re: mouse scrolling

I used to have a dell latitude laptop and to get the scrolling and touchpad working right, I had to use the synaptics driver for it. I'm not sure if it's installed by default or not.

you can try installing gpointing-device-settings (if you are using gnome) and set it up from there.

Code:
yum install gpointing-device-settings xorg-x11-drv-synaptics
I had to go back in and do tweaking in my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to finally get it to work the way I wanted, though.

Here is the pertinent part of the xorg.conf file I made to get mine to work with the synaptics driver. your mileage may vary

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
    InputDevice    "Configured Mouse"
    InputDevice    "SynapticsTouchPad"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier    "Configured Mouse"
	Driver	      "mouse"
	Option	      "CorePointer"
	Option	      "Device"		"/dev/input/mice"
	Option	      "Protocol"		"ImPS/2"
	Option	      "ZAxisMapping"		"4 5"
	Option	      "Emulate3Buttons"	"true"
EndSection
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier    "SynapticsTouchpad"
        Driver        "synaptics"
        Option        "AlwaysCore"
        Option        "SendCoreEvents"    "true"
        Option        "Device"		"/dev/psaux"
        Option        "Protocol"        "auto-dev"
        Option        "VertScrollDelta" "20"
        Option        "VertEdgeScroll" "true"
        Option        "MinSpeed" "0.25"
        Option        "MaxSpeed" "0.75"
        Option        "AccelFactor" "0.750"
        Option        "EdgeMotionMinSpeed" "200"
        Option        "EdgeMotionMaxSpeed" "200"
        Option        "UpDownScrolling" "1"
        Option        "SHMConfig" "true"
        Option        "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
EndSection
Edit:

the configured mouse sections were for an external mouse I was using. you won't need that part, probably.

Re: mouse scrolling

no.. when it gets stuck.. you can hit Ctrl-Alt-F2 and get you a console screen.. login as root, cd /etc/X11 then rename or delete your xorg.conf file.

you can look in your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file and see what errors it's giving you, too.
