WINE technology at its best……. 2001-11-22 11:37 pm Just apt-get it from sid Hope it’ll make it to woody before release… they may/should do a exception from freeze rules here imo. 2001-11-23 12:00 am I wish that they made Slackware pacakges instead of packages for Connectiva Linux… I don’t know of anyone who uses that. Plenty of people use Slack, though. 2001-11-23 12:02 am I wonder. Do they offer any Linux, ready-made, object-prelinked packages? Also, what about out-of-the box FreeBSD support? 2001-11-23 5:10 am The mousewheel support is for PDF viewer is not a big deal. Every KDE app should work with mousewheel automatically. If a KDE app doesn’t recognize mousewheel it’s a bug, and not a feature to be implemented in future releases. 2001-11-23 10:34 am The Debian packages has been object prelinked for a long time now… 2001-11-24 12:02 am I have to agree with the comment about the mousewheel. That’s been my biggest complaint about X in general is trying to get the mousewheel to work. Under Windows, I can install a driver that lets the wheel and all 5 buttons on my Intellimouse Optical work with every application. I can’t even get the wheel to work under KDE/Gnome 2001-11-25 2:09 am You want your wheelmouse to work, and so do we (well I do) What kind of “Intellimouse Optical” is it, and how it attached (USB?) What kind of hardware are you using (Intel/AMD ?) and which Operating System? What have you tried so far? Did you specify that you had the wheelmouse at any time during installation, or perhaps when you first attached the mouse? The most frequent answer is that you need to add a configuration setting telling XFree that the additional two buttons (that’s what the “wheel” is internally) represent a Z axis rather than just more buttons. OSNews probably isn’t the place for this, you might try your vendor’s support or if your wallet is empty a search on google or a local support group?
