Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1480106
Mouse Speed behaviour in Gnome altered after updating to RHEL 7.4
Last modified: 2017-08-16 10:20:20 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):
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
as described above
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.
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)
