Re: Mouse scroll wheel function busted

Harrumph! Well ... I'll be dipped if I can figure out where to stab that patch in to make it all work down the old channel in Xorg.

Re: Mouse scroll wheel function busted

try creating a couple of files in /etc/profile.d (name doesn't matter, just the extension, must be .sh and .csh)

etc/profile.d/xxxxx.sh
Code:
GDK_CORE_DEVICE_EVENTS=1 && export GDK_CORE_DEVICE_EVENTS
/etc/profile.d/xxxxx.csh
Code:
setenv GDK_CORE_DEVICE_EVENTS 1
the files will probably need to be executable as well.

chmod +x /etc/profile.d/xxxxx.csh

chmod +x /etc/profile.d/xxxxx.sh

Edit:
This will set it upon each boot, and you will need to reboot for it to take effect

Ayup. That worked. I'll leave the naming convention I used up to your worst-nightmare type imagination. <....>

Re: Mouse scroll wheel function busted

were you forcibly using an older X server, or something? I haven't seen this bug at all, so I was assuming our X server was new enough not to be affected.

Nope. The same issue effects both x86_64 and i686 LiveCDs, and the bare metal fresh install from the i686 version. (Didn't bare-metal the 64 bit.)

And check out the NV30/nouveau testing screenshot. Lotsa fun there, too! <....>

Re: Mouse scroll wheel function busted

From what I have found, the bug supposedly occurs if you use GTK+ 3.3.7 or newer with xorg before 1.12

Now from what I see, F17 has xorg 1.12.0-2 currently, and GTK+ 3 version 3.4.0-1

So, it really shouldn't be having this issue. I haven't noticed it on my system here, either.

Edit:

Dan, what versions do you have of those 2 packages?

yum info xorg-x11-server-Xorg gtk3 Should tell you the versions.

Re: Mouse scroll wheel function busted

I didn't try running the LiveCD or even install from it. I used the DVD, so I wonder if that made some difference.

I will probably be grabbing one of the LiveCD images in the next day or so and try in on one of my other machines, though. I'll check out the nautilus/mouse thing then.
