Description Hans de Goede 2012-03-22 08:15:15 EDT
This is easiest to reproduce by starting a vm with a qemu usb tablet (which has an emulated scrollwheel), start a fully up2date Fedora-17, login and start xev. Then use the mouse wheel of your mouse, notice
that no events are reported. This happens both with the usb tablet, as well as with the uinput tablet generated by the spice-vdagent.

I've run evdev-dump on the spice-vdagent /dev/input/event# node and it is getting the scrollwheel events just fine, therefor I believe this is a xorg-x11-drv-evdev issue.

Since this is something one would expect to work out of the box I'm proposing this as a Fedora 17 blocker,
and as a Fedora 17 beta NTH.
Comment 1 Petr Schindler 2012-03-22 10:27:55 EDT
I vote -1 for blocker. System is usable and this problem occurs mostly on virtual machines. Anyway, comfort is lesser, so it would be really nice if it worked. I'm +1 on NTH (probably final).
Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2012-03-22 14:59:43 EDT
yeah, -1 blocker on this, it doesn't meet any criteria. it is damn annoying, but poking evdev late always gives me the wibblies, so I'm not sure about nth. i'd really like it fixed though!

Hans, you actually proposed it as Beta blocker not Beta NTH - adjusting. Sorry if the process was hard to understand.
Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2012-03-26 23:14:03 EDT
xorg-x11-drv-evdev-2.7.0-2.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
Comment 5 Petr Schindler 2012-03-27 01:34:09 EDT
It works for me with this update.
Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2012-03-28 20:13:26 EDT
Discussed at 2012-03-28 go/no-go meeting, acting as an NTH review meeting. Accepted as NTH: this is a bit borderline as it's not a terribly critical bug and evdev is a fairly sensitive component, but it got accepted, probably because lots of us use VMs all the time and found this very annoying. If we didn't fix it, wheel scrolling would be broken in 17 Beta KVM live boots forever.
