Description Ulrich Plate (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-02 13:31:13 UTC
This is unrelated to my earlier bug #54512 which eventually had nothing to do with KDE. Looks like it's different this time, because it does not exist in other window managers on the same laptop (tested in Ion3), only in KDE. 

After moving from kde-3.3.1 to kde-3.3.1-r1 a few days ago, the mouse wheel that used to scroll flawlessly (in all applications except acroread) has ceased to work as such. Scrolling up and down now only produces "Unhandled event: 1" and "2", scrolling while pressing down the jogdial gets unhandled events #3 and 4. It still works as a third mouse button when pressed, though, I can paste highlighted text this way, for example. All this on a Vaio PCG-R505R/GK with its jogdial built into the touchpad. Nothing else has changed in this system. I was used to getting those "unhandled event" messages for all the other special function keys (sleep, brightness, volume) in the Vaio, but this is the first time scrolling with the wheel doesn't work.

The sonypi module itself comes from a 2.6.9-mm1 kernel.

Sorry, it seems no one here has enough experience with that kind of hardware.
Was it fixed in the meantime?
