I believe the imps/2 should be Explorerps/2. In my Suse 9.0, it is imps/2, but this did not work in 9.1 for the very reason you said. I changed it to Explorerps/2 and it started worked. Here is the entry from my xf86.config. This is also for USB wheel mouse.

<>Section "InputDevice"
Driver "mouse"
Identifier "Mouse[3]"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Name" "Autodetection"
Option "Protocol" "Explorerps/2"
Option "Vendor" "Sysp"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

I believe that you will need the protocol "imps/2" for the wheel to work.


This is what mine says, except:

Option "Name" ""USB-Mouse;IMPS/2 on USB"

and I don't think its name should effect functionality, right?
