My vertical wheel does nothing in cases where I expect it to scroll, like in a web browser. It might have something to do with the fact I ran this command to disable my middle click:

xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 25 3 4 5 6 7 8 9"

However, I only want to disable middle click when I use the touchpad. So I re-enabled middle click:

xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9"

Even so, vertical scroll is not working. It should just work. This mouse works fine on Mac.

Restarting the laptop fixed the issue.
