Hmm. I’m on a laptop without scroll wheel, so I bound two keys
to emulate a mouse wheel:


Does this mean that synthetisising those events would also not work?

(I have not tried; I didn’t know that Alt+scroll scrolls horizontally
for Qt — that being said, which Alt… I use Alt to enter umlauts… so I
hope this works with Alt_L as defined by xmodmap(1), not by Alt as on
the physical keyboard / scancodes…)

Yes, I hate users and I want them to suffer.
