Scrollwheel is reversed (wacom)


Hi All,

I have this wacom Intuos3 tablet. It works fine except for one small thing. When I use the mouse that comes with this tablet, the scrollwheel is inversed (i.e. scroll up acts as scroll down and vice versa). Is there any way to overcome this in the xorg.conf file? I've already tried the following options:

Option "ZAxisMapping" "5 4" instead of Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

and

Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 5 4 6 7"

Does anyone of you knows a fix. Perhaps not for a wacom tablet, but a fix that works with normal mouses aswell so I can try that out.

Try this - go to Control Center > Peripherals > Mouse

There is a checkbox for "Reverse scroll direction"

Unfortunately, my computer display broke down today. So, at this moment I do not have access to my computer. I assume you mean the controlpanel in KDE. Do you perhaps also know of a way to set it in the xorg.conf file?

regards,
Rutger
