Horizontal scrolling scrolls in wrong direction if 'Concent sticks to fingers' (natural scrolling) is activated

Asked by Marius Hofert on 2013-03-26

In Ubuntu 13.04, if you go to the Settings -> Mouse & Touchpad -> check "Content sticks to fingers", then you get 'natural scrolling' as for cell phones, for example. Now if you enable horizontal scrolling (via Alt + F2 -> dconf-editor -> org -> gnome -> settings-daemon -> peripherals -> touchpad -> check horiz-scroll-enabled), then scrolling horizontally does not respect this rule. It uses "classical" scrolling instead. So in case if both "Content sticks to fingers" and horizontal scrolling are activated, the latter should change its scrolling direction, everything else contradicts logic.

I suggest you report a bug. Raring is not stable and not ready. If you want an OS that works then I suggest you reinstall with Precise. If you are happy to put up with bugs, feature holes and other oddities but want to report bugs to get the OS ready for release then by all means use Raring but it will NOT be a smooth ride.

I reproduce it in the final version. Please file a bug report.

Can you help with this problem?
