USB mouse wheel has stopped scrolling up and down after upgrade to ubuntu 11.10

Asked by riyas on 2012-04-13

After upgrade to ubuntu 11.10, USB mouse wheel has stopped scrolling up and down. Xev shows no events for scroll. Parsing output from usbmon shows the scroll activity (in binary stream ie cat /dev/usbmon5 | hexdump -C
). Further checked with livecd of 10.10 and scroll function is working. Same issue is present in 11.04 and 12.04.

Nop. It didnt work. I even tried booting from a usb image. It works fine in 10.10 but not is 11.04,11.10, or 12.04.

Thanks in advance.
