How can I turn off mouse-wheel emulation with middle mouse button? I need to use middle mouse shortcuts in Blender and that feature covers middle mouse in all aplications. It is possible to turn it off just for Blender? Because I think this feature is very useful in some applications.

OS: Ubuntu 11.10
PC: Lenovo ThinkPad X200

Please describe your mouse. Is the middle button just a button (like the left and right button), or is it a wheel? – Prateek Nov 6 '11 at 11:56

I fixed it by changing Blender to "Emulate 3 Button Mouse" and turning off opening context menu by Alt+RightMouse. How do I disable the alt-right click keyboard binding? It's just advice for Blender users, I don't find option for turn off scrolling in CCSM. :(
