Description Joonas Sarajärvi 2015-12-03 14:59:09 EST
Description of problem:
If I log into a gnome session, the scroll wheel causes window content to move downwards if I push the wheel and upwards if I pull it. This is opposite to how it normally works pretty much everywhere.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I have no idea about which component is actually responsible for this. Feel free to reassign as appropriate. But here are at least most of the possible components.
