    Finally, to Setup Trackball Scroll in Fedora
    Make an evdev Configuration File with then nano Editor:

    sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf

    If No nano then first to install it issue:

    sudo dnf install nano

    Append something like:

    Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "evdev pointer catchall"
        MatchIsPointer "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "evdev"
        Option "EmulateWheel" "true"
        Option "EmulateWheelButton" "[BUTTONID]"
        Option "XAxisMapping" "6 7"
        Option "YAxisMapping" "4 5"
    

    Simply Replace [BUTTONID] (8 in mine) with your Choice in the above.
    Ctrl+x to Save & Exit from nano!
    Reboot to Activate the Setup, and Good Track:

    sudo reboot now
