How to disable "natural scrolling" in Pear Linux

disable natural scrolling in Pear Linux
Apple always loves to do weird things. When Mac OSX Lion was released, the mouse  scrolling direction is reversed and called "natural scrolling". It means you will have to scroll up the middle wheel to read the lower part of the page and vice versa. And Pear Linux adopts this feature too to make it behave like Mac OS. I myself dont like this feature and I believe many other users will have the same opinion. In this article, I will show you how to disable the "natural scrolling" feature in Pear Linux 6:

The file which is responsible for this feature is ".Xmodmap" in the home folder (just open the home folder and hit Ctrl + H and you will see it). If you open this file with gedit, you will see it is like this:
 pointer = 1 2 3 5 4 6 7 8 9 10 11 12  

As you notice, 5 is placed before 4 in the sequence and this makes the "natural scrolling" happen.  If you switch the sequence back to the normal order (4 before 5) or just delete this ".Xmodmap" file then log out and log in, the natural scrolling feature will be disabled.

Note: but if you are using another distro and want to enable this feature in your distro, just open the text editor and create the file ".Xmodmap" with the switched sequence like above and save it in the home folder, then log out and log in and "natural scrolling" will be enabled in your distro.
