The wacom intous3 touch strips can only scroll in one direction! Is this a known issue or just some thing broken at my end?
Thanks a lot,

    I finally figured it out the problem is the default setting of kde-config-tablet 1.3.5-1 . The strip up and strip down should be disabled:
    Option "RelWheelUp" "button +11 "
    Option "RelWheelDown" "+16 "
    Option "AbsWheelUp" "+13 "
    Option "AbsWheelDown" "+16 "
    Option "AbsWheel2Up" "5"
    Option "AbsWheel2Down" "6"
    Option "StripLeftUp" "+11 " =>Wrong!
    Option "StripLeftDown" "+16 "
    Option "StripRightUp" "+13 " =>Wrong!
    Option "StripRightDown" "+16 "

    Here is the correct setting:

    Option "RelWheelUp" "button +15 "
    Option "RelWheelDown" "+16 "
    Option "AbsWheelUp" "+3 "
    Option "AbsWheelDown" "+16 "
    Option "AbsWheel2Up" "5"
    Option "AbsWheel2Down" "6"
    Option "StripLeftUp" "1"
    Option "StripLeftDown" "2"
    Option "StripRightUp" "3"
    Option "StripRightDown" "4"
