Question How can I inverse mouse movement directions?


Some years ago I have used a small prog from Logitech to change the mouse movement direction. I used to use on one computer on the normal way and on the other on the inversed way. It was funny and after some days I could use both method without problems. I would like to test my 5 years old son, how fast he can change the usage of the mouse inverse and back to normal. I use KNOPPIX 4.0.2 installed.

Well since you are using KDE as desktop this is an easy one. Go to KControl->Peripherals->Mouse and there you'll find what you need.

I am sorry, I was not home to check the answers. Thank you for trying to help, but it is not the solution. In Kcontrol I can reverse the scroll direction only, not the whole mouse directions. I would like the cursor go down when I move the mouse up. And vica verse.

Well, one easy solution is to just rotate the mouse 180 degrees. Of course, you'd need to press the buttons with your wrist, but I suppose that might just add to the fun.
