Thanks for the quick reply nadroj. I do use KDE but I was trying to know if there is any solution.
Anyway, in KDE's control panel I can't find the solution. I can see options for:
1. "Pointer acceleration"
2. "Mouse wheel scrolls by"
Neither of these are what I'm looking for. I'm trying to find:
3. "Mouse wheel acceleration" (not just speed)
I used the latest version of KDE but I could have missed something...At least, that's what i'm hoping for
