[Bug 1246683] Re: Middle button does not work for scrolling


I know, it's not the best means of sharing this, but since it appears to be a problem here:
Here is a more general way of solving this. Additionally, the script activates natural scrolling.


set -eu

id=$(xinput list | sed -n '/SynPS\/2 Synaptics

naturalScroll=$(xinput list-props "$id" | sed -n '/Natural Scrolling Enabled (/s/.*(\([0-9]\+\)).*/\1/p')

click=$(xinput list-props "$id" | sed -n '/libinput Click Method Enabled

tap=$(xinput list-props "$id" | sed -n '/libinput Tapping Enabled

xinput set-int-prop "$id" "$naturalScroll" 8 1
xinput set-prop "$id" "$click" 0 1
xinput set-prop "$id" "$tap" 1
