Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1258236
mouse scroll wheel no longer works after upgrade f22->f23
Last modified: 2015-09-16 17:59:21 EDT
My mouse scroll wheel no longer works after upgrading from f22 to f23. I verified the scroll wheel works on a mac laptop so it doesn't seem to be a hardware issue. Middle click with the wheel _does_ work however.
I ran 'sudo showkey' and no button presses showed up for any scrollwheel movement.
Running 'sudo libinput-debug-events' does show results when I move the scroll wheel though, example
event5 POINTER_AXIS +29.24s vert 15.00 horiz 0.00
event5 POINTER_AXIS +29.41s vert 15.00 horiz 0.00
event5 POINTER_AXIS +29.73s vert 15.00 horiz 0.00
event5 POINTER_AXIS +30.11s vert 15.00 horiz 0.00
event5 POINTER_AXIS +30.48s vert 15.00 horiz 0.00
event5 POINTER_AXIS +31.03s vert -15.00 horiz 0.00
event5 POINTER_AXIS +31.08s vert -15.00 horiz 0.00
event5 POINTER_AXIS +31.18s vert -15.00 horiz 0.00
event5 POINTER_AXIS +31.27s vert -15.00 horiz 0.00
Let me know if I can provide more info
$ rpm -q libinput

Actually turns out the scrollwheel works in firefox, but not nautilus or gnome-terminal or epiphany. So maybe gtk3?
Proposed as a Blocker for 23-beta by Fedora user bentiss using the blocker tracking app because:
I consider having regular mouse wheel working (under Xorg) as a minimum to release a new milestone.
At least 2 other bugs are duplicate: 1261504 & 1254169.
As mentioned in bug 1254169, the wheel is working properly on Gtk3 under Wayland.

Yep, I confirm applying the patch mentioned in this bug solves the issue.
Matthias, Carlos, can one of you apply and push this for F23?
I backported the patch to gtk3-3.17.8-2.fc23
gtk3-3.17.8-2.fc23 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 23. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2015-15770
Discussed at 2015-09-14 blocker review meeting: https://meetbot-raw.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2015-09-14/f23-blocker-review.2015-09-14-16.00.log.txt . Rejected as a blocker, as the criteria do not contain a "whatever Cole considers" clause and this doesn't violate any of the ones that do exist. ;) Accepted as a freeze exception issue: while not being a blocker this is obviously annoying and cannot be fixed with an update at least for live images and the installer environment.
gtk3-3.17.8-2.fc23 has been pushed to the Fedora 23 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.\nIf you want to test the update, you can install it with \n su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update gtk3'.
