Description Eli 2010-07-10 20:06:44 UTC
Description of problem:
The right-most portion of the trackpad acts as a scroll wheel to scroll windows.  As of July 8 or 9, 2010, this functionality abruptly ceased working.

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

How reproducible:
always; it no longer scrolls at all.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a window to scroll
2. move finger along the rightmost edge of the trackpad to scroll
Actual results:
cursor moves

Expected results:
window should scroll

Additional info:
I think there were a number of updates pulled in from 'yum update' at "around" this time, but I'm not certain which.

Comment 1 Eli 2010-07-10 20:23:29 UTC
I'm using KDE.  System Settings -> Keyboard & Mouse -> Touch Pad -> Scrolling
"Enable Vertical Scrolling" was not enabled, though "Enable Vertical Two Fingers Scrolling" was.

I enabled "Enable Vertical Scrolling", and hit Apply.  Scrolling with the touch pad works again.

I'll close this bug since it's working for me now, BUT: the scrolling disabled itself two days ago and I don't know why -- I didn't do it.
