Description of problem:
When scrolling the mouse well in one direction the windows cursor goes up and down
There do not seems to be a specific pattern (on scroll up may randomly result in one scroll up or one scroll down).
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Plug the mouse
2.Open any windows with a cursor
Bad mouse name in lsusb
Scrolling up must scroll up
Scrolling down must scroll down
Tested in konsole, firefox and kwrite under the latest (13 sept 2011) KDE desktop.
HARDWARE SPECIFIC BUG : scrolling works with my dell mouse, fails with my Criminal C+ one
lsusb identify my criminal C+ mouse as:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 09da:000e A4 Tech Co., Ltd
But it's a textorm mouse, not an A4
This bug has already happen in the past and was fixed but I cannot find the old bug report.
That last bug was 539548 which was fixed by some kind of xorg update. Let's route this to xorg-x11-drv-evdev for now.
As for the A4 Tech listing in the lsusb output, my guess is that it's just a Textorm rebranded A4 Tech mouse. The other bug showed the same thing as well. According to the USB ID, it's probably an A4Tech X-718.
Is this still an issue?
What's the evtest output when you scroll?
Closing due to missing data. Please reopen when the evtest output is available.
After investigation it's a pure hardware problem. Something is broken in the USB plug, therefore after unplug + replug it works most of the time. The bad luck is that working was correlated to non linux OS by chance.
Appologies for the false alert.
