xfce4 horizontal natural scrolling in LM17?

Postby ooddiittyy » Sun Jul 06, 2014 10:02 pm

Hey all, I've just spent a bit of time setting up xfce4 (having run Cinnamon for the last year) and am trying to reproduce the horizontal scrolling found in that desktop environment, but haven't quite gotten it. Vertical natural scrolling has a menu option in xfce4, allowing it to be set, but horizontal scrolling doesn't and the default scrolling direction is painfully opposite that available in Cinnamon.

Is there an easy way to change this, perhaps via a config file edit? I'm aware that there exist some programs to do this system-wide, but I'm hoping there is a simpler way that doesn't risk mucking up the existing configuration.

Many thanks!

The terminal command:

~> xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 5 4"

Will reverse scrolling temporarily.

To do it permanently, add the following to ~/.Xmodmap :

pointer = 1 2 3 5 4 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
