Do you have the "Num Lock" key pressed?  (#1 most annoying thing with 
Mathematica for Linux.  #2 is probably the lack of scroll wheel support)

Solution: add the following lines to .Xdefaults in your home directory 
and restart X.
XMathematica*primaryModifierMask: Mod1Mask
XMathematica*secondaryModifierMask: Mod3Mask

If that's not the problem, then I don't have any ideas.

Good luck,
