I have bought the Cordless Desktop EX 100 to use it with Linux (Ubuntu 9.04). http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/keyboards/keyboa
But I can’t use the Mouse Wheel to scroll (example: up and down scrolling in a window or an Internet Browser).
In Windows the mouse wheel works well, so it is not defect.
I know, that Logitech don’t make special driver for Linux, but can anyone give me a tip that I can use the mouse wheel in Linux?
The Keyboard and the Mice are very good (yes I’m a Logitech fan^^) therefore, I would not buy another model but I really need the Mouse Wheel function.

In Linux you can edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf (as root). Look for a section like this:
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "false"
Insert the next lines above EndSection:
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Restart your X server, rebooting is often the simplest way to do so, this should enable your mousewheel.

When I open "xorg.conf" the file is blank (no text into the File)
I´ve copy your text and add the 2 lines. But after the Restart the the Mouse Wheel don´t work
