If you encountering an issue with Natural Scrolling, you should open a new issue with debugging output.
In order to do it, you have to follow those instructions in order to be sure to execute the latest version
sudo apt-get install git python-gobject, python-appindicator, python-gtk2, python-gconf, python-pyudev
Fetch code sources
The first time
First choose a place where you want to put the source code. Let say you want to use a Developments folder in your home:
cd ~ mkdir Developments cd Developments/
If you didn't already done this, install git.
For Ubuntu users you can do it very easily by installing the Git package.
(You can also use a terminal, and execute
sudo apt-get install git)
Now clone the repository (fetch sources) to this Developments folder
git clone git://github.com/cemmanouilidis/naturalscrolling.git
Now you should have a new folder named naturalscrolling with the latest version of the sources.
Test the application
To test it, go into the folder, and execute bin/naturalscrolling:
cd naturalscrolling ./bin/naturalscrolling
By installing it
To install it locally use the the python setup script:
sudo python setup.py install --prefix=/usr/local naturalscrolling
If you just have to execute the Debugger, without testing anything just do those lines:
cd /tmp git clone git://github.com/cemmanouilidis/naturalscrolling.git cd naturalscrolling ./bin/naturalscrolling -d
Then copy/past the output in a new Gist
Finally you can clean your machine:
cd ~ rm -rf /tmp/naturalscrolling
