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?
Touchpad scroll reverses when mouse attached
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
Then you will have to create or edit a file called
~/.xbindkeysrcin your /home directory and reverse the bindings. In other words, you’ll have to replace
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.
