Description diabolix 2016-02-14 12:05:55 UTC
In any scrolling area in the libreoffice suite, every time I try to scroll down or right with the touchpad on my laptop, libreoffice scrolls back up or left respectively in an erratic and unpredictable way.

This is most noticeable in a Calc spreadsheet or Writer document, but I've noticed the same behavior in every scrollable area I was able to find.

Scrolling with a regular mouse wheel works fine.

Have the same issue on my laptop, using touchpad with edge scrolling.

Same happens with an external touchpad, using 2 finger scroll.

I'm on Archlinux and there is already same behaviour reported.
Using Cinnamon DE.

libreoffice-fresh 5.1.0-1

I have the same issue, using Arch Linux - Xfce enviorment - same version 5.1.0-1 - the older one is ok

Same issue.  Two finger scrolling downwards on my laptop touchpad is erratic; the direction and amount of movement (up or down) seems pretty much random.  Scrolling upwards, however, is fine.

Ubuntu 15.10 64bit.

Having the same issue, most notably scrolling down will scroll up. In some cases where I swipe down hard to produce a long-standing scroll, it will scroll down for the first half and scroll back up for the second half of the duration of the scroll. Scrolling works fine in every other application, and worked fine in previous versions of LibreOffice.

4.4.1-2-Arch GNOME3.

Well, I would say that is about enough confirmations :) -> NEW

Dupe and apparently fixed already.
