• Logitech mouse scrolling is quite bad.


    Has anyone seen this issue? I just did a fresh isntall of Antergos with the latest version, and everything is fine, except for the scrolling. I use a thinkpad with an external mouse.

    It sometimes registers the scrolling as reverse as well.

  • @donbibi
    Could be many reasons. One is that the mouse is a bit dirty; if so, you could simply vacuum or blow the dirt away.

    In addition, there’s an app called solaar which may help Logitech mice. Install it and reboot.

  • yeah here and there i have slow scrolling inpersonal preference, i use then imwheel with zenity-gtk2 because i dont use webkit2gtk i use this script some where under https://askubuntu.com/questions/285689/increase-mouse-wheel-scroll-speed/639662

    if imwheel loaded you can set scroll speed with the script, most of you use zenity but i lack of webkit2gtk so i use zenity-gtk2 :) nvm…

    otherwise you have to configure mouse settings of xorg config libinput story …

  • i got a Logitech M500 mouse, my trackball had also such scroll thing…

  • @manuel Ahh solaar doesn’t pick up my mouse, even after a reboot :(

  • @ringo32 I see, but the weird thing is when I run

    xinput -list
    
    xinput -list
    ⎡ Virtual core pointer                    	id=2	[master pointer  (3)]
    ⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer              	id=4	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎜   ↳ xwayland-pointer:16                     	id=6	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎜   ↳ xwayland-relative-pointer:16            	id=7	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎣ Virtual core keyboard                   	id=3	[master keyboard (2)]
        ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard             	id=5	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ xwayland-keyboard:16 
    

    This is what I get, It’s a x270 thinkpad with logitech g403 mouse.

  • you using gnome with wayland?

  • this is mine :

    [email protected] ~ % xinput --list             
    ⎡ Virtual core pointer                          id=2    [master pointer  (3)]
    ⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                id=4    [slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎜   ↳ Logitech USB Laser Mouse                  id=11   [slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎣ Virtual core keyboard                         id=3    [master keyboard (2)]
        ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard               id=5    [slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Power Button                              id=6    [slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Power Button                              id=7    [slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Logitech USB Keyboard                     id=8    [slave  keyboard (3)]

        ↳ Logitech USB Keyboard System Control      id=10   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    

    my gues is you using gnome with wayland otherwise you dont have xwayland…

  • @donbibi
    A long shot, does unplugging and replugging mouse USB dongle help?

  • @ringo32 It looks that way - it’s a fresh install with nothing configured - apart from keyboard keys.

  • changed display manager ?

  • @ringo32 yes I did! From lightdm to gdm becasue lightdm just takes ages during boot.

  • when your on Display manager , look intoo the session i believe its standard in Gnome wayland

    try to seelect gnome xorg then would be also a change of your mouse especially scroll

  • @manuel Unfortunately not, It’s still slow.

  • looked in your session selection?

  • @ringo32

    After switching to gnome-xorg,

     xinput --list
    ⎡ Virtual core pointer                    	id=2	[master pointer  (3)]
    ⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer              	id=4	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎜   ↳ Logitech G403 Prodigy Gaming Mouse      	id=9	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎜   ↳ Logitech G403 Prodigy Gaming Mouse Consumer Control	id=11	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎜   ↳ SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad              	id=19	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎜   ↳ TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint                   	id=20	[slave  pointer  (2)]
    ⎣ Virtual core keyboard                   	id=3	[master keyboard (2)]
        ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard             	id=5	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Power Button                            	id=6	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Video Bus                               	id=7	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Sleep Button                            	id=8	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Logitech G403 Prodigy Gaming Mouse Keyboard	id=10	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Logitech G403 Prodigy Gaming Mouse System Control	id=12	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ USB-HID Keyboard                        	id=13	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ USB-HID Keyboard System Control         	id=14	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ USB-HID Keyboard Consumer Control       	id=15	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ USB-HID Keyboard                        	id=16	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Integrated Camera: Integrated C         	id=17	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard            	id=18	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ ThinkPad Extra Buttons                  	id=21	[slave  keyboard (3)]
        ↳ Logitech G403 Prodigy Gaming Mouse Consumer Control	id=22	[slave  keyboard (3)]
    

    It looks much better, but the scroll speed is still slow, but this time, fewer mis-scrolls.
    I’ll stick to xorg for the time being, as the scrolling is much more manageable here.

  • @donbibi said in Logitech mouse scrolling is quite bad.:

    logitech g403

    you can those with 4 votes https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/307663/change-scroll-speed-with-libinput?answertab=votes#tab-top

    otherwise you use it with imwheel , imwheel can fasten up te scroll speed there with a script you can change te speed further i dont know :)

  • I have a Microsoft mouse and it works better than Windows.

  • @debiandonder Ahhh my problem disappeared btw!

    I’ll mark this as resolved, yeah it usually works like a dream, especially on i3wm, but I’m glad this problem has disappeared now! Thank you guys :)
