P.S. Bug 892157 from 2014 in Gnome references the same issue, but calls it
"Natural scrolling"

I am running OpenSUSE Leap 42.2 x86_64 with KDE on a Dell Latitude E5430 laptop
recently upgraded from Leap 42.1

go to "Mouse - System Settings Module" > "General" tab
check that "Reverse scroll direction" is unticked
Also check that in file "~/.config/kcminputrc"
in the [Mouse] section
that "ReverseScrollPolarity=false"

Then try changing "Reverse scroll direction" from untick --> tick
Then ensure that

At this point I do not get any change in mouse behaviour

For info, file
is touched but not updated

go to "Touchpad - System Settings Module"
Note that it says:
"Active settings don't match saved settings.
You currently see saved settings."

so I click on "Show Active Settings"

go to "Scrolling" tab
change "Reverse scrolling: Vertical" from untick --> tick
and "OK"

Note that in:
No files are modified

Again, I do not get any change in touchpad behaviour

Again, go to "Touchpad - System Settings Module"
go to "Scrolling" tab
currently "Reverse scrolling: Vertical" is set to tick

changes "Reverse scrolling: Vertical" from tick --> untick
and "OK"

Again, in
No files are modified

In Leap 42.1 I had trouble getting reverse scrolling to work and stay working,
but I did get it to work and it did keep working between boots.

I can confirm that a member of #suse IRC also tried changing the mouse
behaviour with the same outcome: no change in behaviour
