I am trying to configure a COMPAQ Wirless Optical Mouse to work with KDE on 
FreeBSD 5.2.1. so far I have not been very successful. This is a USB mouse.

I can get the mouse pointer to work in FreeBSD and KDE without any problem. 
However, I can not get the wheel to work anywhere.

This is my 'rc.conf' file:

moused_flags="z 6 7"

Finally, here the the mouse section from the 'XF86Config' file:

# Identifier and driver

    Identifier  "Mouse1"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option "Protoco"     "Auto"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/sysmouse"
    Option "Buttons"     "7"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"

I might add that I receive an error message upon boot up that the 'moused' was 
not supplied with the correct port. I have tried every port I can think of, 
and it sill gives me an error.

I would really appreciate any help someone might be able to afford me.
