There's no need to crosspost. The site moderators can handle moving questions around. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Oct 25 '10 at 8:31
i don't know how to delete my question off stack overflow! – blank bank Oct 25 '10 at 8:38
You don't. You flag it for moderator attention, and they'll handle it. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Oct 25 '10 at 8:42

Try imwheel, xmodmap and/or xinput.
