    Hi all,
    In Mandriva 2006 (that i just re-installed), my mouse won't scroll correctly.
    In Firefox, scrolling back goes forward a page and scrolling forward goes back a page.
    In any other program, it will only scroll sideways.
    I've used all the configurations available and have confirmed the mouse works in Windows.
    Any ideas on how to fix this please?
    P.S - This mouse has worked flawlessly before in Mandriva.

    Thanks.

    Run the Mandriva Control Center (mcc from the shell, or else "Configure This Computer" throught the GUI). There is an entry just for mice, choose the appropriate one from the list and then use the test dialogue to make sure the buttons and scroller are all working as expected.
