Inertial scrolling causes problems


New Member
Inertial scrolling can cause usability problems with some programs used in some desktop environments, if a modifier key is pressed soon after inertial scrolling has been launched because software may have some binding for that, but user may want to type a pure key shortcut, instead.

These so include e.g. LibreOffice, Chromium web browser and Xfce UI zooming. Can you name other software that has this kind of issue? How do you cope with that?

You can disable inertial scrolling of devices that use synaptics driver like this. But not all devices use that driver, such as Logitech K400r. Are there other such devices?
