      The wheel events should be configured using user-setup. Simply run user-setup
      (Help->User Setup). Go to the Mouse page. Click on the Button which by default
      is 'Left' and a pop-down menu appears which contains 'Wheel Up' and 'Wheel
      Down'. Select one of these and then select Bound To and you will get a list of
      Scroll functions.

      Note that this is a much better way of doing this as firstly you don't need to
      edit a file, secondly you can also setup modifiers easily (i.e. Shift wheel to
      move a page etc) and thirdly on unix some magic key translations must be done
      to support a wheel which this does for you.
