Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2002-06-24 02:43:28 EDT
imwheel is not, and has not been needed in XFree86 for wheel mice to work
properly in over 2 years, possibly even 3 years.  Wheel mice work properly
out of the box as long as you have chosen the proper mouse protocol for
the mouse that you are using.

In particular, the "IMPS/2" protocol works with most mice.  Try that.

However, since this is not really a bug, but rather more of a tech
support issue, and we do not offer technical support via bugzilla,
please consult one of our mailing lists if you require more detailed
assistance in using your wheel mouse.

Good luck.
