expresskeys needs to tell linuxwacom to not handle the scrollwheel when it is in charge of it
Last modified: 2014-06-02 09:23:01 EDT
Description of problem:
expresskeys needs to tell linuxwacom to not handle the scrollwheel when it is in charge of it.
On the graphire4 (and likely others), the scroll wheel is working without expresskeys running, and if you set the scroll wheel to other keys than scrolling, both scrolling and those keys will happen.
"xsetwacom get pad-4x5 RelWUp" returns "5", which apparently means it's not clearing a setting it should be setting.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit the .expresskeys/[tabletname].conf1 file to change the behavior of the scroll wheel.
2. Use the scroll wheel
Both scrolling and the behavior set for expresskeys happens.
Just the expresskeys behavior should happen.
Not a regression.
