Question How to increase wheel speed in GTK-apps/Opera?


I have been trying hard to customize the mouse wheel to scroll more lines in GTK-apps and Opera. The mouse-configuration in KDE's control panel only works for qt-apps such as Kate. I would really appreciate getting a solution to this problem as my fingers are getting sore from all the scrolling I have to do to view large pages...

Any tips would be greatly appreciated! I am running KDE 3.4 on the newest Kubuntu. The mouse is an MS intellimouse explorer 3.0.

As i recall you can set the number of lines to scroll in the Opera configuration. No idea for gtk apps apart from using Gnome though..

Does anyone know how? Opera is the program where this bothers me the most, so it would be nice if someone could hint me in the right direction as to where to find it. Settings? Ini files?
