Mouse wheel works every other scroll-tick

Postby dream_flyer » Sun Oct 22, 2017 9:52 am

Hello all!

With the very stock mice.xml (and with stock keyboard config), in the view mode, I get zoom change every other scroll-tick. How to make the wheel work every tick?

(I want to use the wheel for other purposes, and this "every other tick" is pretty annoying)

FG version 2017.2.1, Debian 9 Stretch.

PS. The event-driven second mouse's wheel works fine - every tick. However, its config is very different. In normal mouse the wheel is treated like two buttons (3d and 4th), while in "event" mouse it's a single "wheel" (see slawekmikula's config example in the linked thread - the "rel-wheel" name). My problem is that I can't find any documentation for all this. Does it exist? Can somebody please point me to it?

+1. Many years in FG I'm experiencing the same problem. I had tried it on Linux, Windows, 3 different computers, but the same problem - when using scroll wheel one click is useful and other is empty.

Thanks guys for confirmation! No big problem, I re-arranged controls to not use the main mouse wheel.

FWIW: i do see similar in other apps just scrolling the window... depending on the app and the mouse settings... YMMV...
