Since latest updates - Gnome Shell, scrolling is reversed

I upgraded a bunch of updates relating to xorg earlier (testing repo is enabled). Since rebooting, the scrolling on my touchpad is reversed. I really don't want this.

A bit of googling suggests that to enable reverse scrolling you must edit ~/.Xmodmap, but the file is non-existant, so it technically shouldn't be enabled in the first place.

Any ideas on how to fix it?

Edit: I just noticed if you scroll on the left side of the touchpad, it scrolls the right way. If you scroll around the top and bottom it scrolls too. It seems like circular scrolling is permanently on and also reversed. Very strange.

Yeah, I have testing enabled.

I just realised there's a testing repo forum under this one. Perhaps a mod could move this thread for me?

This is not gnome shell only - I've got the same thing with kde so it's probably xorg related.

Only bug tracker I can find is bugs.archlinux.org. Is there any dedicated tracker for testing repo?

There's only one bugtracker. Just mention you're using [testing] + the packages' version numbers. That should do it.

see the other thread about xorg 1.12:

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 3#p1061333

Updated to xf86-input-synaptics 1.5.99-0.2 today and it cured my coasting problem.

I found that in GNOME you can control the direction of scrolling by enabling/disabling "Natural scrolling" in the Mouse & Touchpad options.

Hi sese_k

Welcome to Arch Linux and thank you for a good suggestion.   Unrelated to your post, I am going to go ahead and close this post.  This subforum is for things in testing, and the original thread was about a version that has long since gone mainstream.
