How to get the mouse wheel to work without root privilege

Hi,

I use a nomachine terminal to access KDE desktop(redhat linux enterprise) on a server. Is there any way to get the mouse wheel to work without root privilege ?

I have a usb mouse connected to a nomachine terminal,most likely the mouse wheel problem is not the problem of nomachine, but rather with X.conf. I don't have root privilege.

I believe xmodmap can do it. The order of these buttons may not be entirely right but a bit of experimentation might find the order you need. xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 4 5"
