Hi Marc,

Please send your replies to the list and not to me directly, OK? That keeps the threads intact so other people can (hopefully) benefit, too.

Oh sorry Carl, I thought I was replying to the list. I had just hit reply, and your email address is very similar to the list's email address so I missed it... Was wondering why my post hadn't shown up! ;-)

... It comes with an adapter that plugs into one of the USB ports. The mouse connects to the adapter wirelessly.

I'm glad they're not making wired infrared mice now. ;-)

At least you were experimenting with other USB mouse settings. That's reasonable when your specific model isn't listed. And SuSE/YaST isn't even aware that it's an infrared device. That complication is contained between the mouse and adapter. As far as the system can tell, you might as well be running a standard, corded USB mouse. You /were/ experimenting with *corded* USB mice settings, right?

Actually I believe this mouse is not infrared, but working at Ghz freqs via radio. It even comes with a second USB cable that allows the mouse to be recharged from another USB port, and this chord also acts as an antenna for the mouse, to further improve the signal, when it is hooked up to the mouse.. Very handy/nice design, especially in noisy RF environments like my ham radio shack. But you may be right, as far as the handling of the scroll wheel is concerned, which is the only component of this mouse that I am now failing to get operating. Somehow, I had experimented around with it under SuSE9.1 and got it working, but cannot remember how or what mouse driver I was using. so I am once again fooling around with it trying to figure out how to get it working.
