Time Event
Recommendations on audio editing package
Hello all.

I'm about to begin the process of converting some old reel to reel audio tapes to CD. As such, I need something to record and edit audio. So, I'm soliciting recommendations.

Anyone? Bueller?
USB Mouse Wheel not working
My mouse wheel on my USB mouse has decided not to work. I started with a Logitech USB optical mouse plugged in with a USB-to-PS/2 adapter when I first started running Linux. I never had any desire to change it. Now, just to tweak things, I decided I'd try running it off the USB port. It should work, right?

Well, after a few struggles (basically, me refusing to read any documentation), I have the mouse mostly working. However, I cannot use the scrollwheel to scroll. It will middleclick, but turning it does nothing. I'm using a 2.6.8 kernel with xorg 6.8.0 on a Gentoo box. It's an olderish Logitech USB optical mouse (using the USB port). Here's the relevant pointer section of my xorg.conf:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping 4 5"

The only other InputDevice in my xorg.conf is the keyboard. I've tried with and without the SendCoreEvents option. I've exhausted my patience with Google searches (at least for now), and am hoping someone else has used a similar mouse in a similar configuration.

Thanks for any help.
