xpra showconfig | egrep -i "wheel|swap"
Should show:
mousewheel = 'on'
swap-keys  = True

You can override these settings on the command line or place them in
your xpra.conf:
echo "mousewheel = invert-y" >> ~/.xpra/xpra.conf
echo "swap-keys = no" >> ~/.xpra/xpra.conf

Then running that same command again should now show:
mousewheel = 'invert-y'
swap-keys  = False

These options are shown in the command line help:
xpra -h
It was missing from the manual, but this has been rectified and will be
in the next version, in the meantime you can use the online version:
