[Solved] Odd scroll wheel behavior

Hi,

I've recently installed arch after running debian for a while and I'm experiencing weird scroll wheel behavior. When I position my mouse over a window the first "click" on the scroll wheel won't scroll the page but the second all all following "clicks" work as expected until I move the mouse then the first "click" won't scroll again. By click I mean turning the wheel till it clicks and registers a scroll, not pressing down on the scroll wheel.

I can tell that it is registering the input because it will select the window I am trying to scroll but won't scroll it till the second "click" even if the window is already selected.

The issue exists in xfce, gnome and kde so I'm assuming its not a DE issue or an xorg issue since gnome and kde run or wayland.
The issue exists on both my laptop and my desktop with 2 different mice, a logitech g502 and a razer deathadder.
The issue exists when running in virtualbox.
The issue exists in the latest fedora and ubuntu live cd but not the latest debian live cd.
The issue exists when running arch with the LTS kernel.

For some reason firefox seems to be immune tho this and works as expected in all of the above test cases. Most other programs that I have tested don't work including the terminal emulator, mousepad, gedit and the various settings guis that come with the DEs.

Any advice would be appreciated,

Thanks.

Re: [Solved] Odd scroll wheel behavior

That did indeed fix the issue I was having so I went ahead and added it to /etc/environment and now everything is running as expected.

The only program that still has the issue is chromium. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Re: [Solved] Odd scroll wheel behavior

enter "about:flags" and try to disable smooth scrolling. But that's only a guess (doesn't happen here at all)

Re: [Solved] Odd scroll wheel behavior

I was able to solve the issue by disabling xinput2 scrolling in chromium

chromium --disable-high-precision-scrolling
