Increasing mouse scroll speed


Mouse scroll speed is way too slow in programs like Brave browser.

What's the method to increase in latest-greatest CentOS or Fedora?

Are you using Wayland or Xorg environment?

A guide that might help, depending on your graphical environment....
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Mouse_acceleration

Udev approach (setting custom mouse DPI value)...
https://cgit.freedesktop.org/systemd.../70-mouse.hwdb

YMMV.

I am running the default xorg that came with CentOS and Fedora both of which I run.

The article describes mouse acceleration, I know how that do that, pretty simple with xset. The issue I have is with scroll speed.

There is incredibly no simple way and no option in either Gnome or XFCE window managers to increase the mouse scroll speed.

FWIW, it appears that KDE has made recent improvements with respect to scrolling speed...

Maybe check/submit Gnome bug report for the same.

Doesn't Fedora default to wayland for a few releases already?

That was my understanding as well.
