[Bug 926917] Re: Mouse wheel tilt not works


This bug was apparently introduced in the userspace (evdev) in 12.04
rather than in the kernel. On Christopher Penalver's suggestion, I
created a new bug report,
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1260513, in order
to investigate this bug further. As described in post 20 in that bug
report, the bug manifests itself in 12.04 but is not present in 11.10 as
both 12.04 and 11.10 were tested with the same mainline kernel version.

The workaround in post #16 here appears to fix the bug in evdev.

  Mouse wheel tilt not works

Status in xserver-xorg-input-evdev package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu 12.04After updating the xserver-xorg-input-evdev package from 2.6.0-1ubuntu13 to
  the Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 8000 wheel tilt works like scrolling and the xev utility  reports that buttons 4 and 5 clicked when I try to tilt the wheel left and right (should report 6 and 7 buttons for the tilt, 4 and 5 for wheel scroll). 
  It worked right before the update.
