Mouse wheel in 0S3.2

I want to ask for your experience with the native mouse driver in WB3.2. you can turn wheel support on in IControl. Does it work for anyone of you, and if so, with which mouse and which adaptor?

I have bought Cocolino for this purpose and I have Genius NetScroll Eye PS/2 mouse. But to get the wheel working I had to install FreeWheel driver, supplied with Cocolino (which I wanted to avoid).

You still need to use a driver to read the mouse signals and translate them into Intuition events, but you shouldn't need Freewheel, which takes the Intuition events and applies them to windows that don't support the wheel natively. Are you running the Cocolino driver still?

Oh, thank you Rob. I though the OS3.2 functions substitute those drivers.

I installed both Cocolino driver (which was added to s:user-startup) and Freewheel (which was added to s:wbstartup/ ) from the supplied floppy and the scrolling acted weird. I removed the freewheel now and it works perfectly.

But tell me: it does NOT matter if the IControl mouse wheel checkbox is tagged or not.

Good stuff That's interesting - I hadn't noticed that before, but you're right. I just tried turning off the setting (and rebooting for good measure), and it hasn't made any difference to the scroll wheel operation that I can see. Might be a more subtle feature (e.g. scroll wheel on gadgets or something), might be a bug...

I use a Logitech MX300 on a Cocolino adaptor... I just had to run its driver from User-Startup... Wheel works no matter if its activated in IControl or not... EZMouse or Topolino does not work...
