Natural scrolling for mouse

So I know that others have posted regarding similar issues for general natural scrolling and touchpad specific natural scrolling but not natural scrolling for mouse / mice.

I am aware of the .Xmodmap trick and what appears to be the defunct ppa:zedtux/naturalscrolling. The reason I am bringing this back up is that the .Xmodmap trick isn’t clean and doesn’t work everywhere in the Mate desktop. For example if I open the dconf editor natural scrolling doesn’t work at all. That said is there any way that option might be integrated in the future / near-term?

For reference I am running 16.04.1 LTS 64bit.

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

Solved : .

None of these suggestions worked for me. And as many other distros have solved this with a simple 1-click setting I was hoping that Ubuntu Mate would have an easy option. Or some plugin that could do this.

I’ve recently (17.04) tried Xubuntu, Kubuntu, Fedora, Mint, Elementrary OS, Solus Budgie and Netrunner, where the natural scrolling option is available. So I suspect that this is might be already possible in an easy way in Ubuntu Mate. Any help appreciated.

In mate 18.04.1 Preferences–> Mouse–>Touchpad. Under Scrolling click Enable Natural Scrolling.

Thanks Jason. I’ll give it a go.

I don’t find Preferences. I have Control Center->Mouse But it doesn’t have any Touchpad option. Maybe because PC doesn’t have a touchpad.
