Get Scroll Mouse to Work on Ubuntu 7.10 and VMWare Fusion

I'm using Ubuntu 7.10 running under VMWare Fusion on my Mac for a project. I couldn't get the scroll mouse to work. A bit perplexing given that it is a very generic Logitec Optical mouse. Well I finally found a fix on this page: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VMware/Tools. Just change the Protocol line for your mouse device in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to: Options "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2" That seems to do the trick
