When I use putty to connect to sshd in Fedora, I run tmux and ten use vim to code. In vim, I can use scrollwheel to scroll down, but cann't use scroolwheel to scroll up.
If I use xsheel to replace putty and run vim in tmux, I can use scrollwheel to scrool down and up.
If I use putty and I do not run tmux and run vim to code, I can use scroolwheel normally.
In .vimrc, I set "mouse=a".
How to resolve it? Thx!

Welcome to LQ!

This link might help. I wasn't sure if your mouse is wired or wireless-

The gesture recognition I think is new.

Hope that helps-;)

Thx, in Fedora Terminal, these all behaved normal. Only when I use putty for window to login in and run vim in tmux, the scroll wheel wouldn't work fine.
By the way, my mouse is wired.

You are Welcome-;)

SSH provides the same functionality as Putty- Didn't know that btw till today-
Could that be causing the conflict with the mouse I wonder?

Maybe another member using Fedora knows how to get around this.
Sorry I don't know more-

Have a good week!

Hi mapleking3,
I met this issue too. I find a workaround occasionally. It's just simply to change the Putty you use to version 0.62 .

Hi Edward Hunter,
As you said, I changed the Putty from 0.63 to 0.62 and solved the problem.
Many thanks!
