Slow mouse scrolling speed

Post by phil_n » Mon Feb 05, 2018 4:58 am

I am using LM Cinamon 3.6.6 and try to increase the scrolling speed of my mouse (using the scroll wheel). But there seems to be no option in System settings -> Hardware -> Mouse and Touchpad to increase the scroll speed. I have my mouse acceleration set to maximum, which gives me a descent speed moving the mouse pointer. But when I scroll down a web page, usig the scroll wheel of the mouse it takes ages to scroll down the page.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

The last post under

https://askubuntu.com/questions/255890/ ... roll-speed

works. But only for one session. As soon as I reboot I have to do the manual procedure again.

I am very surprised that there is no alternative in native LM 18.3 Cinnamon to set the scrolling speed of the mouse. It should be subject to an update fix.

If you're using Firefox then type this in the address bar

about:config

Then click that you accept the risk of changing the settings , then search for this setting by pasting it in the search bar at the top.

mousewheel.min_line_scroll_amount

Then click it to change the value to a higher one like 100.

Will that change the mouse scroll speed permanently for all applications, not just Firefox?
