Mouse scroll wheel acceleration
Does anyone know how to enable the mouse scroll wheel acceleration (not speed)?
I can't find that option anywhere. Is there such an option in linux?

in the Control Panel for the KDE UI there is option for mouse acceleration. you never specified which desktop environment you are using so if you need other help be more specific please.

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 :)

I'm using ubuntu 9.04 and I couldn't find mouse acceleration (not speed again) in control panel also I couldn't find scroll (whell) speed too.

How can I do these? Where? I'm not using KDE.

Mouse acceleration: the system which windows has that if you move your mouse x2 faster, than your mouse doesn't goes x2, it goes x3 or more. I mean acceleration as this.

It's set in the Xorg.conf -- just do a search here or with google.
