I use two mice, but I don't like the scroll direction on the left-hand one so I used xinput to swap scroll-up and scroll-down specifically on that mouse (xinput set-button-map "Primax Kensington Eagle Trackball" 2 1 3 5 4 8 9 to be exact). Unfortunately this doesn't seem to be respected in all applications, in particular I'm seeing that Konsole scrolls the same way regardless of xinput settings (though I've come across a couple of other ones too, such as the Test Your Settings dialogue in the Gnome mouse settings). Is there a better way I can use that will reverse the scroll direction for that mouse only across all applications? I'm using Ubuntu Gnome 15.04.
