How do I adjust scroll wheel sensitivity, P9 [Solved]
« on: January 30, 2019, 03:24:12 pm »
New to Peppermint AND to Linux.  My problem is: when I use my scroll wheel the screen jumps down too far (page and halfish each time) making the scroll wheel useless.  I tried adjusting the settings in preferences but with no change.  I use my wheel ALL the time and this is very frustrating.  Help please.

+ Following this thread.
I use CAD (mostly in Windoze), but might try a couple packages under Linux - in which case this would be good to get working, as the wheel is for zooming in and out.

Fraid you got it in one ... Micrsoft wirless 1000.

They suited me at the time.
Is there a particular mouse I should get for max response?

Your problem is probably a stuck Alt key .. Alt+Scroll == Zoom

But please start your own topic if you're still having problems.

No there's nothing wrong with Microsoft hardware :))

Can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
xinput list-props 10 | grep 'Scrolling Distance'and
Code: [Select]
xinput list-props 11 | grep 'Scrolling Distance'

I'm a bit baffled why there are 2 showing up, so we're going to need to figure our which receiver the mouse is actually attached to

Try running
Code: [Select]
xinput set-prop 10 'Evdev Scrolling Distance' 10, 10, 10is scrolling better now ?

if not, try running
Code: [Select]
xinput set-prop 11 'Evdev Scrolling Distance' 10, 10, 10is scrolling better now ?

Please be aware this is NOT permanent yet (it will be reset on next boot/login) but once we figure out which works, we can make it permanent.

Thanks again.
