Jump to scroller/slider point


How do I change KDE's scroller/slider settings? I want scrollers and sliders to jump immediately to the point I click, not incrementally after many clicks. Thanks & merry Christmas

I think it won't be possible without substituting the new scrollbar code with old scrollbar code and compiling KDE yourself.

Scrollbars in Linux generally jump directly to the desired position on middle-click.

Not really wrong. You would have to go into the source code somewhere and modify it if, as you imagined, you wanted it on normal left-click. You just weren't aware that there's already a suitable alternative available.

Well, I didn't know, never thought that on a middle-click we can jump directly to desired position.
