provided that the space navigator gives you x/y axes and you're running
evdev from master, enable wheel emulation on button 0.
tis turns every motion into a scroll wheel event.

for horizontal scrolling, you need to set the XAxisMapping option, it is
unset by default. set it to 6/7 for left/right scrolling.
