Re: gnome-control-center - Adding natural scrolling support for mouse

Hi Diego,

please look at the following Bug 682457 [1]. There is also several comments about "Evdev Scrolling Distance". 
However this bug will be fixed with libinput port, which should be done in the near future.

Subject: gnome-control-center - Adding natural scrolling support for mouse


My name is Diego Giagio, I'm a software developer and this is my first email
to this list. I want to contribute a patch to gnome-control-center to add
support for natural scrolling to mouse devices (currently there's support
for natural scrolling on touchpads only).

I've done some research and I found out that a good way to implement this
would be to use evdev's X11 driver property "Evdev Scrolling Distance" in a
way similar to what's already implemented for touchpads, thus reusing some
already written code.

Since this patch would involve changing the Mouse & Touchpad settings user
interface, I'm linking two screen shots[1][2] with the current and suggested
interfaces. I'm basically moving the "Natural scrolling" checkbox from
"Touchpad" to "General" pane as it's related to both mouse and touchpad.
Another way of doing that is to add another checkbox with the same label on
the "Mouse" pane.

I'll be happy to hear your thoughts so I can start working on this.
