• Touchpad scroll reverses when mouse attached

    HI, i like my touchpad scroll direction to be reversed and my mouse be normal, they have separate settings so i set them that way and touchpad works, but when i attach my external mouse it makes the touchpad scroll direction normal (not reversed), even when i detach the mouse its still like that, i have to go to touchpad settings and disable and re enable reverse scroll to fix it, why is that?

  • Hi. From the arch wiki:

    thumb Buttons - forward and back
    Note: The following maybe redundant depending on whether xev detects all your mouse buttons correctly (functions can be mapped on a per-app basis) or you want to change the default behaviour.

    According to the wiki:
    back is 8 and forward is 9.

    so you’ll need to install xvkbd and xbindkeys
    Then you will have to create or edit a file called ~/.xbindkeysrc in your /home directory and reverse the bindings. In other words, you’ll have to replace
    b:8 with b:9
    b:9 with b:8

    It would look something like this:

    # Mouse Buttons
    "xvkbd -xsendevent -text "[XF86Back]""
    m:0x0 + b:9 
    "xvkbd -xsendevent -text "[XF86Forward]""
    m:0x0 + b:8

    then test your new settings and input into terminal by typing

    Have a look here before you start

    I hope that I linked you the proper page for this. Hence that I suggest that you read through it first before changing anything.
