I cannot scroll using the mouse wheel inside CDE file manager (dtfile). Scrolling inside terminal or text editor or anything else works fine. How can I configure it to allow for mouse wheel scrolling?

Solaris 10 on SPARC.

I don't remember if I ever found a solution that worked with dtfile. The other CDE applications simply needed additions to their app-defaults files, which users could also provide via their $HOME/.Xdefaults as shown in an ancient blog entry at https://blogs.oracle.com/alanc/entry/wheel_mouse_support_in_solaris.
