[Bug 926917] Re: Mouse wheel tilt not works


I was looking at that other bug report @vk1266 linked, I do not see why
they thought it was a kernel issue, as shown by the USB packet dump I
submitted above the data is unique between the scrollwheel and the tilt,
thus it is hitting evdev with unique information, thus it would have to
be an evdev issue and not a kernel issue.  It is a simple fix to be done
and it is hitting multiple mice in my household, one of which is my
SO's, who is quite distraught over such a simple bug that does not exist
in her old Windows install when she uses her tilt quite heavily, hence
my very quick testing...

  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.
