Is there a way to adjust the mouse wheel scroll sensitivity in Fedora 18?
I'm running Fedora 18, with the standard Gnome desktop. I use a Logitech M705 mouse with the free-scrolling mouse wheel, which I love. In windows, I'm able to configure how many lines to scroll per notch of the mouse wheel.
My month old Acer needs to go home for a repair to whatever is causing a bright vertical line in the screen so I dusted off the old G72 and ran a yum update on it since I hadn't used it in a couple of weeks.
Everything works fine except the scroll wheel on my Microsoft 4000 wireless mouse. The wheel is hypersensitive.
I'm using Unity in Ubuntu 14.04, but since I can't put the Unity dock on the bottom of the screen, I've set it to hide and set the sensitivity low enough that my mouse can't activate it and slide it out. In place of the Unity dock, I now use the Cairo-Dock, but the Cairo-Dock changes apps if the scroll wheel is bumped.
I have a basic optical wheel mouse (white & grey, 2-button + wheel). The scroll function operates when I roll the wheel, the wheel-click works for opening a link in a new tab, but the document / webpage wheel-click scroll-lock function does not work to move within a document / page. When I check the settings, in Ubuntu, for the mouse there are no options for the wheel.
Is there a program/utility for increasing the number of the lines the mouse wheel will scroll when tuned (only need it for browsing) but in general would be fine to. Managed to adjust Firefox to scroll better,so far no go for Chromium
For some reason, my mouse scroll-wheel speed is noticeably slower than on any other operating system I've used. I looked in the system settings GUI and I haven't found anything of use. Normally in windows and Mac OS X you can find a scroll speed slider in the mouse settings, and I've noticed Ubuntu is slowly phasing out most of its' settings.
I have a Microsoft wireless USB mouse whose scroll wheel seems to have absolutely no acceleration whatsoever on Linux. On Windows and OSX, the faster I scroll, the faster the page scrolls, and vice versa.
I managed to use xinput to change the mouse sensitivity settings following this guide, and it worked great.
