[Bug 926917] Re: Mouse wheel tilt not works


I can confirm this issue remains with Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS.

Mouse is a Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000 v1.0

Running xev confirms mouse wheel tilt right and left (buttons 6,7) are
being remapped to mouse wheel scroll up and down (buttons 4,5).

version.xserver-xorg-input-evdev: xserver-xorg-input-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.
