    No, I want 100 times more notches on the wheel and pixel accuracy.

    That's not what this is.

    Since you didn't mention in which application, I'll assume it's the web browser. In Firefox for example, browse to about:config and look for these parameters to alter the scrolling amount and speed:
    Code:
    mousewheel.min_line_scroll_amount
    mousewheel.acceleration.factor

    Doubtful. There's already plenty of precedent for doing this sort of thing without colliding. For example, under X11, to receive the supplemental data which distinguishes a drawing tablet from a a mouse, a program has to explicitly ask the XInput API for said supplemental information.

    Contribute to libratbag!
    https://github.com/libratbag/libratb...r/data/devices

    Run the command "lsusb" and copy the USB ID of your mouse and the name and write an issue with the information, or create a .device file.
    Look at the example.device file.

    You still need to mode switch the mouse which is probably more protocols, but yes a way to fix libinput to work with smooth scroll wheels would be nice. I am currently forced to keep the evdev xinput driver around because libinput can't handle this, and just giving it the data from the kernel might be a way to do this since they aren't accepting the patches to do so on their own level.

    Maybe take a look at the code and see if you can contribute a patch.

    Dose this apply to other mice as well?

    It's mostly great for smooth scrolling. I find it really nice in Windows.

    That's great, I've always wanted better handling of these events, which are way too much "hardcoded" in various parts of the OS design to my liking.

    Well, I guess you can have smoother scrolling with this, which might be a great thing for web browsers, but also computer design software that often requires scrolling around, or more generally, any slider/scrollbar.

    As for gaming... Maybe, but I don't see it useful apart maybe from a couple games where a high precision input for a continuously variable setting might be required. Flight simulators with throttle/flaps controls comes to my mind, but not much else (and do you really want to play a flight sim with a mouse?).
    Oh, yeah, that would be great if retrofitted to Osmos, maybe.
