Mouse Speed and Scroll Not Good Enough

Post by itahhh » Mon Jan 08, 2018 9:30 pm

Hello guys

I'm using LM 18.3 and using KDE Plasma, the interface is fine and works well, on Mate desktop I can configure my mouse pointer speed very well cuz I like very fast.
On KDE gives the option to speed up till 20 which is so slow for me, is there any way to download some application and setup perfectly to my use.

Other thing that I dont like either is scrolling speed even using the max number of lines that I can setup it's not enough.

I've been using linux since 22 years ago and even 2018 seems we don't have even basics apps to setup.

= (

Any other way?

Hi "itahhh",

Welcome to the wonderful world of Linux Mint and its excellent forum!

It would help to know more about your system setup. If you run "inxi -Fxzd" and "lsusb" from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information.

I am using KDE 18.2, and my mouse is fast in both pointer speed and scrolling speed. I have two different mice, and they do act differently because one has a higher resolution. Did you restart after making changes to the System Settings Hardware Input devices section?

What type of mouse are you using, and how is it connected?

Hope this helps ...
