Re: Mouse wheel to fast/sensetive, no control of wheel speed. (Solved)

Made several attempts using all41's suggestions but I couldn't make it work. Thank you for your help all41! Since the last post Installed Mint 19.3 Beta on an external drive. The mouse scroll speed problems went away. Installed kernel 5.3 in my Mint 19.2 machine. No more mouse scroll speed problems....
