The way to setup scrolling only one raw in OpenOffice.org Calc using
mouse wheel button is to setup somehow the X Window, eg. to setup mouse
driver to different value then the default, right? If one setup this
successfully I don't know how would this appeares in other applications
than OOo?

Searching with Google using keywords 'evdev scroll wheel' gives to me no
answer for this. Thanks!
