[Bug 1260513] Re: 045e:00f9 [Gateway DX4860] Horizontal scrolling is broken with 9-button Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000


Christopher, can you tell if trying all these different kernels can be
done in a guest OS in Virtualbox? To identify the offending commit I
will need to do quite a few reboots. Doing such reboots on my main
workstation means a lot of time would be wasted to idling while my
computer reboots. I would like to avoid such idling as much as possible.
If I do reboots on a guest OS in Virtualbox, I can do other things
during reboots.

I was thinking of using a properly working 12.04 with the evdev patch
applied as a host OS and all these different kernels in a guest 11.10 or
12.04. Thoughts?

  045e:00f9 [Gateway DX4860] Horizontal scrolling is broken with
  9-button Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  horizontal scrolling is broken with the 9-button Microsoft Wireless
  Laser Mouse 5000.

  WORKAROUND: sudo apt-get install build-essential xserver-xorg-dev xutils-dev libudev-dev
  wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/x/xserver-xorg-input-evdev/xserver-xorg-input-evdev_2.7.0.orig.tar.gz
  wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-input-evdev/+bug/926917/+attachment/3373367/+files/horizontal_scrolling.patch
  tar -zxvf xserver-xorg-input-evdev_2.7.0.orig.tar.gz
  cd xf86-input-evdev-2.7.0
  patch -p1 < ../horizontal_scrolling.patch
  ./configure --prefix=/usr

  To invert and fix the scrolling change the -1 on line 1601 of src/evdec.c to 1 so it should read:
  SetScrollValuator(device, axnum, SCROLL_TYPE_HORIZONTAL, 1.0, SCROLL_FLAG_NONE);
