Mouse wheel scrolls too fast

Postby fin2cv on Fri Apr 26, 2013 6:43 am

Hello!

A new Linux Mint 13 KDE LTS user is born :D Installation went fine. Even the previously misfunctioned keys for the volume and so on came to live in my laptop (Asus N73JG), those keys where silent when using win 7.

Only slight problem after few hours of use is that the mouse wheel is scolling pages too fast. I've tried to adjust the speed from the System settings > Input devices, value for the "Mouse wheel scrolls by" is now "1 line" (the smallest value possible). And I tried to fix the problem by installing "smooth wheel" add-on for firexox but no visible cure for the problem. The mouse is "Microsoft Wireless mobile mouse 3000 v20" (sorry for the first dirty word, maybe this explains all for this problem :mrgreen: ). Anyone experienced this kind of problem?

edit: touchpad scrolling is working as it should, so the problem is with the wireless mouse..

Cheers!

Problem solved, I ran the updates for the system, and now mouse wheel scrolling is as it should be.. As always, you shouldn't hurry :oops:

I found this would happen again after reboot. My elegant solution is to yank the USB dongle out and put it back in. Then the scrolling works again until the next (or sometimes next after that) reboot.

For what it's worth, a "dongle" is a security device that some software requires for copy protection (see Wikipedia page). You're just referring to a USB plug or connector.

A friend of mine always calls his USB flash drives "dongles"---and I don't know why, but it drives me nuts. Maybe because it's such a silly-sounding word. Or maybe it's because I live in the suburbs and don't have enough to do. Maybe that's why I'm posting this, too. Anyway, there you go. :?|

Hello everyone,
I might have similar "problem". I've recently installed Mint 15 KDE, everything works fine, except sound applet in the tray - when I adjust volume by hovering mouse over it and scrolling, the volume jumps up/down by 15%, which is too much. Adjusting volume using global shortcuts (on keyboard) works fine (5%). Is there a way to decrease the increment of mouse scroll on the sound applet? I haven't found anything in the sound options, kmix or input devices (decreasing the number of scroll/lines doesn't work).

Cheers and thanks for any answers.

I'm having the same issue with 15 Cinnamon Olivia. My scroll-wheel's sensitivity is way too high and the System Settings' mouse dialog has no settings option for the scroll-wheel.
Pulling the USB wireless connector for the mouse does work in the interim.
But this is a shoddy fix for the long-haul. :-) Still happy that this does work though.

Same problem here - mouse scrolls much too fast!

Linux Mint 14 Mate 64bit
Microsoft Comfort Mouse 4500

My old Microsoft Basic Optical Mouse works just fine.

The trick to unplug the mouse works, but it's annoying.

P.S.: Just noticed this is the KDE section. Oh well, the same problem exists with Mate.
Asus Sabertooth X79, i7 3930K CPU, 8x4GB Kingston DDR3 RAM, Noctua NH-D14 CPU cooler, Sapphire 7770 GPU, PNY Quadro 2000 GPU, Asus Xonar Essence STX, Sandisk Extreme 120GB SSD + various HD, Corsair 500R case, SeaSonic 660W Gold X PS

In my experience when the mouse wheel works nicely fast to scroll pages, let's say a web browser, it's too fast for some system or DE actions. Old style mices behaving fine for those DE actions are desperatly slow when scrolling. I learnt to live with it. I want the wheel very fast.... and using the keyboard volume knob in my keyboard. :mrgreen:
