stumpwm problem with mouse on gtk3 apps such as evince and other apps
I have been using stumpwm for several years and am very happy and can't contempl
I just noticed a change in debian sid.
The new version of evince 3.10 (which is a pdf viewer)
mousewheel no longer scrolls up and down the page while running under stumpwm.
I reported to evince upstream and they denied it as a problem on their end.
I found they are right when i opened up lxde icewm gnome etc evince worked norma
Note evince 3.4 under stumpwm (debian wheezy) was fine.
It was only when i upgraded 3.10 or even using jhbuild latest 3.11 same behavior
Do you have any idea what the change in mouse handling that would affect this ap
I have not noticed other applications.
is it a change in the xorg?
thus qpdfview works with normal scroll behavior and okular.
I mentioned on #stumpwm irc
where it was confirmed by alezost
It can be solved by
> GDK_CORE_DEVICE_EVENTS=1 evince file.pdf
will work normally with the mouse
can this be set in the .profile or .bashrc ???? don't know how
