  > Hmm, I understood this differently. I thought this happens when you react to each input event sent by the kernel, regardless of its delta, like e.g. the old gwenview code did which you linked: it just zooms in once per event. Thus devices which generate more events with smaller deltas zoom in faster, which is not good. And this bug is definitely at the application level, not in libinput.
  The Gwenview issue you're talking about manifested in touchpad scrolling feeling too fast. IMHO, touchpad scrolling in KTextEditor views feels perfect right now, so we don't have that particular issue. However yes, we should probably be taking into account the delta. But maybe that's material for another patch?
  I will indeed blog about this. If you'd like, I can request that people specifically test it out and offer feedback.
