This is indeed helpful.
Here is my /etc/hal//policy/marble_mouse.fdi
<match key="info.product" string="Logitech USB Trackball">
<merge key="input.x11_options.EmulateWheel" type="string">true</merge>
<merge key="input.x11_options.EmulateWheelButton" type="string">8</merge>
<merge key="input.x11_options.ZAxsisMapping" type="string">4 5</merge>
I got the info.product part by looking at /dev/input/by-id/, and
guessing. I logged out, and restarted hal for good measure. One or the
other may not be necessary.
