Fedora 18 mouse scrolling is overly sensitive


Actually this problem goes back a few versions, but I have yet to find a solution.

The scrolling action using the mouse wheel is way too fast. I managed to find a solution for this for Firefox, but that still leaves this function useless for Open Office, etc. The Mouse/Touchpad settings in System Settings does not offer a wheel adjustment, nor do the Advanced Settings.

Is there a way of dealing with this problem via the terminal?

Hi!

And Welcome to Linux Questions!

I did some searching and found a few good links to some possible ways to solve the issue with your mouse.
This first one looks good-

Hope this helps

Thank you very much for all the work you did on my behalf. The solution offered in the link almost provided the solution. Unfortunately it lead to a different problem, namely hardware recognition. I am using a Microsoft wireless laser mouse. While the transceiver is identified, the mouse itself is not. Here is the terminal output:

o@GA-P55A-UD6 ~]$ xinput --list --short
⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
⎜ ↳ Microsoft Microsoft® 2.4GHz Transceiver V2.0 id=8 [slave pointer (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ Power Button id=7 [slave keyboard (3)]
↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=9 [slave keyboard (3)]

I tried applying the xinput command, but it was not accepted. It was worth a shot though,
thank you

Your very Welcome

Since that didn't work I'm not sure what else would; sorry-
It's probably a proprietary issue-

You could try (of course you'll have to make a new purchase) a Logitech or another standard mouse.

Best Regards

That might just be the way to go. MS is not likely to supply drivers for Linux
