What video driver are you using ? Is the bad scrolling linked to some

Poor scrolling is general.


I'm running NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.18-pkg2.run, it's a beta but no
problem so far, and it was the only one to build on my 2.6.28 kernel
when I installed it. Card is a GeForce 8600GT. As said evdev is
1:2.0.8-1 here, so maybe you're victim of a regression in never package ?

My xorg.conf mouse thing looks like :

 Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "Mouse0"
    Driver         "evdev"
    Option         "CorePointer"
    Option         "SendCoreEvents" "true"
    Option         "Device"\
    Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Option         "HWHEELRelativeAxisButtons" "7 6"

Nothing special in the video driver, option composite is set to "true".

I use evdev because it's the only one giving me horizontal scrolling
with my logitech mouse.

I have no problem whatsoever with scrolling/OpenGl/browser.

I have 2 videocards/monitors/keyboards/mice and my mouse section looks like:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Mouse1"
        Driver          "evdev"
        Option          "Device" "/dev/input/event6"
        Option          "Name" "A4Tech USB Optical Mouse"
        Option          "ZAxisMapping"          "6 7 4 5"
        Option          "Buttons"               "12"

and the mouse is a 2 wheel optical mouse. Only with evdev can I get horizontal scroll to work right with the 2nd wheel. But the vertical scroll with the first wheel is a fright. It just barely works.

Except with XP under VMware it works just beautifully, but there I cannot use the 2nd wheel.

I'll try upgrading the evdev driver but I don't hold out much hope.
