--- Begin Message ---Package: rxvt-unicode Version: 9.22-3 When you scroll a pager in the secondary screen with the mouse wheel - and there has been something in the scrollback buffer, instead of the pager itself - the scrollback buffer will be scrolled by the mouse wheel. To solve this issue, it is necessary to introduce a new option into rxvt-unicode. After installing it, add the following to the configuration file: URxvt.secondaryWheel: 1

--- Begin Message ---Control: tags -1 + wontfix thanks Hi, I spoke about this with upstream. As you said, the scrollback buffer currently gets scrolled when you scroll in the secondary screen, unless the program you are running captures these mouse events. This seems to be the correct behaviour. If you want less (or whatever your PAGER is) to scroll its contents with the mouse wheel, the correct place to implement this would be in less itself. Vim, for example, does this. You may be interested in using vimpager as your PAGER: https://vim.sourceforge.io/scripts/script.php?script_id=1723 You are, of course, welcome to submit this patch upstream: http://lists.schmorp.de/mailman/listinfo/rxvt-unicode Best wishes, Ryan -- |)|/ Ryan Kavanagh | GPG: 4E46 9519 ED67 7734 268F |\|\ https://rak.ac | BD95 8F7B F8FC 4A11 C97A
