(SOLVED) Mouse scrolling Issues (chrome)

Post by MrGrimm » Thu Nov 15, 2018 9:03 am

one of the first things i notice when i have the browser open is when i scroll with the mouse wheel i'm not sent shooting down the page like in most distros,but even though the setting is a vast improvement over other distros it's a bit on the slow side for my taste, and i can't click the the wheel to get auto scroll. can someone please point me to where i can adjust the mouse speed and add auto scroll?thanks

That would depend on your web browser.

no it depends on the mouse settings themselves. in windows i have ALWAYS changed the speed through the mouse setting when i've need to adjust it, same with having autoscroll.

I'm saying mouse scroll behavior is configured in the web browser (on Linux; I don't know about Windows). If you want help with it, you need to tell others here what web browser you're asking about.

I think Chrome has little options aside from that you can toggle smooth scrolling in chrome://flags. I think you can use this extension to configure mousewheel scrolling behavior: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... ource=plus

Perhaps an extension would help? Google 'mouse autoscroll chrome' & you'll find several different ones.

don't be so fast with that statement.

it depends on the system mouse settings, and then it also depends on the Browser Scrolling Speed settings.

my daughter just had to replace her mouse because her new Acer laptop on Win10 would scroll in very jagged responses.... very irritating.

I gave her a brand new LogiTech M510 mouse, and problem went away.

Your choice, but Chrome has lots of autoscroll extensions. Here's one:
