    Phoronix: High Resolution Wheel Scrolling Back To Being Finished Up For The Linux Desktop

    Added over a year ago to the mainline Linux kernel was the high resolution mouse wheel scrolling support. While the support landed on kernel-side for to provide "buttery smooth" wheel scrolling, the work has yet to be wrapped up on the user-space side for making this a reality on the Linux desktop...

    That’s a very good definition of The Desktop Stack. Libinput, wayland, weston, mutter, gtk and Xwayland.

      Too bad I/we still have to bother with imwheel to set any acceptable wheel speed from the (insane) defaults.

        About time! I was worried that Peter actually got bus factor'ed...

          intelfx Those Redhat employees has more responsibilities than just releasing desktop stack code. Some time they work on RHEL or internal projects. Then they show when needed for releases on GNOME, Fedora, Xorg etc. That’s pretty awesome.

          Same with Hans de Goede. He can be absent from public for months and then he shows up with proper solutions to real problems. He also show up to guide the fallen ones. Like here where he explains for the 100th time why server side decoration never gonna fly on Wayland.

            I agree in celebrating Hans de Goede. But how is that relevant to the topic (High-res wheel scrolling)?

              ferry It was an attempt to answer why it sometimes feel like important projects got busfactor’ed. Answer is that the developers do more work than public development. Hans de Goede was just an example. There’s also the previous Xorg team that now works on other parts of The Desktop Stack, like Wayland, Xwayland and Mutter.

                LOL. In any case, Qt already had patches ready to use the new functionality. See https://codereview.qt-project.org/c/qt/qtbase/+/290626

                  carewolf Qt decided not to throw developer resources at libinput. Red Hat refuse to sign the Freedom-hating Qt CLA.

                  So there’s no collaboration. And Qt was safely ignored in the current case to get this stuff accepted by The Wayland Meritocracy.

                    No collaboration? Hmm.. so connecting with Peter and getting him started again all took place in my head?

                    You really need to take your trolling down a notch, you are making the other trolls seem sane.
