Why won't Logitec Marble scroll documents

My Logitech Marble mouse scroll button works on many screens but not on LibreOffice screens. The mouse is also referred to as a track ball mouse. Four buttons on it can be programed to do actions such as go back a page; go forward a page; or turn the ball into a scroll wheel. In fact it is working on this screen now.

Would this question 55836 from 2015 help?
