Reverse scroll in LXDE

Postby salvag » Sat Nov 26, 2011 5:10 am

Hi all,

I'm trying to figure out how to change the mouse scroll behavour, by reversing it. I've got used to Mac OS X scroll, which is the contrary to the one in the rest of the systems. Instead of moving the scroll bar, you move the content of the screen itself. (Sorry for my bad explanation).
What I want is my screen to move up when my finger goes up. And I can't do that from the mouse preferences menu.

Any idea on how to change it?

Thanks a lot!

Try running this command in the terminal:

Code: Select all

echo "pointer = 1 2 3 5 4 7 6 8 9 10 11 12" > ~/.Xmodmap && xmodmap .Xmodmap


To reverse the changes just run this command:

Code: Select all

echo "pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12" > ~/.Xmodmap && xmodmap .Xmodmap


I hope that helps
