<p>For some reason X works just fine here with <tt>/dev/sysmouse</tt>:</p>

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"

<p>Granted, this does not allow foe using my mouse wheel (I've got a Logitech MouseMan+), but I have no problem whatsoever with clicking either of 3 buttons and getting a desired result.</p>
<p>Will, however, try your approach -- maybe it would be better than what I've got right now...</p>

Hmmm, you don't have a protocol specified either.... Hmmm.

Just a guess -- `auto' is implied if not specified?

This works for me ->

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Buttons" "6"

I have a USB Logitech Trackman and the wheel works fine.

i spent hours editing, reading, etc.,until i saw your article.
i made your changes, and Voila!! it worked perfectly.
i commented out--
# Option "protocol" "SysMouse"
changed Option "Device "/dev/mouse" to
Option "Device" /dev/sysmouse as you suggested,
and it worked. WHY??

now for the rub. my X-4 runs with 'BSD 4.7 on drive ad1.
X-3 runs on ad0 under 'BSD 4.5; X-3 XF86Config calls it
Device "dev/mouse"
why are they killing us???
steve --and thanks again.
