Description Nikola 2017-08-10 03:44:30 EDT
Description of problem:
Just updated from RHEL 7.3 to RHEL 7.4

Problem 1 - Setting the 'Mouse Speed' in Gnome Settings for Mouse & Touchpad is broken. No matter what slider value is set, the speed of the pointer does not change at all.
Considering I have three screens to move through, I will either become very strong or very tired very soon.

Problem 2 - While thinking of switching to my laptop Touchpad while I figure the mouse problem out, and discover that 'Two-finger Scrolling' is now inverted??!! Scrolling down moves the page up and vice-versa. Why? Are the majority of users pilots?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 3.10.0-693.el7.x86_64

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to RHEL 7.4
2. Change Mouse Speed to any slider value
3. Observe that nothing changes
4. Use a laptop touchpad and try scrolling with the two-finger method
5. Enjoy the confusion for a few moments

Actual results:
as described above

Expected results:
Mouse speed should be affected by the slider settings.
Two-finger scrolling with the laptop touchpad should be reverted back to the 'natural' way of scrolling, i.e. down for down and up for up.

Additional info:
Let me know if you'll need more details.
I might have selected an inappropriate Product Component - please triage properly in case of a mistake.

Ooops, Please ignore the second problem - found the new setting "Natural Scrolling" for the touchpad is responsible for the inverted scrolling.

The speed of the pointer is still a valid issue though. 

(I have modified the bug summary description)
