You are using a touch pad instead of a mouse and you want to reverse the scrolling direction to have natural scrolling - with the screen content moving synchronously to the fingers' movement on the touch pad.


There is no "reverse scrolling" parameter in IGEL setup.


  1. Open the thin client's configuration either locally or in UMS.
  2. Go to System > Firmware Customization > Custom Commands
  3. Go to Custom Command Desktop Final
  4. Enter new command:
    echo "pointer = 1 2 3 5 4 6 7 8 9 10 11 12" > ~/.Xmodmap && xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap
  5. Save the settings and restart your device.

    Note: This will reverse the scrolling direction of a mouse wheel as well. Swapping 4 and 5 will reverse vertical scrolling, swapping 6 and 7 will reverse horizontal scrolling as well (if supported)

    Legal Note
