Description DeMus 2018-09-14 09:17:34 UTC
Since sometime now, the mouse-settings have been reduced to almost nothing. Where in previous versions you could adjust the mouse the way you wanted, you can adjust nothing now anymore. This results in unexpected and unwanted behavior.
Example: scrolling in Dolphin with mouse-wheel. Where I could set to scroll 1 or 2 lines per notch of the wheel, I can adjust nothing now. Moving the mouse-wheel one notch now results in a totally new screen contents since the content of the window is scrolled way too much.
Please bring back the old settings and let KDE be KDE, where everything is adjustable.

probably you are using mouse kcm for libinput.
many features are not available in libinput, you can replace libinput with evdev under X11.

KDE didn't remove these features, Libinput did. What changed is that in Plasma 5.13, we now support Libinput when used as a mouse driver. So if you have Libinput installed, you will see the Libinput-specific configuration interface that lacks controls for features Libinput doesn't support.

If you preferred the old interface and set of settings, you'll need to remove Libinput, which will make the mouse KCM fall back to the old evdev driver that did support those features.

Don't remove nothing. Add /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/xorg.conf with the:

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "evdev-mouse"
    MatchIsPointer "yes"
    Driver "evdev"

I have KDE Plasma 5.20.5. I switched Xorg to use the evdev driver:
[  5457.753] (II) Using input driver 'evdev' for 'Logitech M705'
But the Mouse config section still doesn't any tabs including the Advanced tab.
Could you advuce, please?
