I was able to fix this with imwheel, as suggested by other comments here. Trying to autostart it with systemd didn't work well for me, because it led to "could not open display" errors. (Probably someone who knows better than I do how to specify systemd dependencies could fix this.) Instead, I created an autostart desktop entry at .config/autostart/imwheel.desktop containing the following:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=imwheel
# "-b 45" restricts this to the wheel and avoids breaking the side buttons.
Exec=imwheel -b 45
StartupNotify=false
Terminal=false
