    bluetooth mouse wheel doesn't work

    I have a bluetooth mouse and it works except for the mouse wheel.
    The thing is, I don't know if the mouse wheel even works, as I was unable to test the mouse in a windows environment. I did test the mouse on android, and the mouse didn't work.
    I also tried xev but it didn't say anything when scrolling with the mouse wheel. It the wheel button does work though.

    From xinput --list:
    ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
    ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
    ⎜ ↳ ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad id=14 [slave pointer (2)]
    ⎜ ↳ Bluetooth Mouse id=10 [slave pointer (2)]
    ⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus id=7 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus id=8 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Sleep Button id=9 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ ASUS USB2.0 Webcam id=11 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Asus WMI hotkeys id=12 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=13 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ ACPI Virtual Keyboard Device id=15 [slave keyboard (3)]
    What I get from xorg log:

    One odd thing is that it says it's a 12 button mouse but it's only a... well... 6?
    2 normal buttons (right + left), another 2 sideways (back + forward) and a DPI button, plus the middle click with the wheel. I'm guessing the On/Off and pairing buttons don't count.
    It's a Bluetooth Glaser Mouse (bought in ebay sent from china):

    From what I could google I suspect I have to put up some udev rules, but I don't know what the correct recipe is.
    I did find something that could be useful, but I still can't see how can I adapt it to mine.

    Another thing is that I have multiple user accounts on my laptop (personal, work, etc), and the above scripts seem to target one user. I'd like it for it to be multiple user.

    Any ideas?

    Re: bluetooth mouse wheel doesn't work


    I have excatly the same mouse.
    Did you mannge to solve your Pb.

    I have also a strange behaviour : She doesn't work as soon as I switch it on. I have to wait some long seconds that the mouse wakes up and finaly works as expected.

    Thanks a lot
