    Yeah, been there. Also with mice require setting the sens and accel to values that no DE supports via GUI. (Because Hutterer decided X's accel code was broken (which it absolutely was) and he could do better (which he apparently couldn't). Oh well...)

    Funily enough, various other libinput changes over the years, combined with a massive bug in GTK3, mean that about half the mousewheel events on GTK3-based systems just get dropped and lost anyway, which makes the "high-end mousewheel" problem even worse.

    I am afraid Chrome and Firefox already have their own implementations for this.
    I don't think so, I've used both with XI2 and neither has any momentum.

    Somebody should write a scrolling momentum library to complement this, before we end up with 100 separate config files and algorithms.

    Yes, using it right now. Let me add that link hover text stretches outside the browser window and off screen, so you need another screen to the right to see the rest. The good thing is that moving browser tabs works, without being offset to where the window was when it opened, which for me is always on the wrong screen.

    Seasoned Linux users: *Casually turns their mice upside down in their hands and drags them on their wheels to scroll the page.*

    My solution was to buy one of those Logitech mice with a wheel that you can physically make spin. I bought the G502, actually two, when that was the only thing you could get with that. Unfortunately, it was too low for my hand, gave me chronic pain, and now I can only use vertical mice, which don't have the feature for some reason.

    The libinput code base is very easy to hack around in. It's very well documented and easy to understand, including build instructions, even if you only potter around in C.
    The barrier to entry for contributors is pretty low, particularly compared with most of desktop linux. As a Fedora Wayland user who prefers Firefox, most of the criticisms in this thread are unrecognisable to me, but if someone thinks libinput needs improvement, go for it.
    The libinput code was already mostly doe. What was missing was adapting the XInput2 driver, GTK and other users of libinput. I know from having done something similar to the evdev driver that XInput2 is fragile and underdocumented

    One can only hope this might fix the issue with slow scrolling upon waking certain mice from sleep, ever since kernel 5.0
