Question How do I configure my wheelmouse for single-line (1 line) verticle scrolling


RE: Ubuntu 12.04/Gnome v3+

I primarily use Gnome.

I have both Firefox and Thunderbird config set to 1-line (single line) scrolling. If I use the keyboard to scroll up or down, no problem .. scolls one line at a time. However, when I use the scroll wheel on the mouse, I get as many as 3 to 5 (not sure exactly how many) line for each click of the wheel. Is not a earth-shattering problem. I prefer scrolling one line at a time. So ... how do I set this configuration?

I think it is handled by the app itself. X server will send an event, see here: http://humanreadable.nfshost.com/sde...heel-mouse.htm. You can use xev to check it (button 4/5 and 6/7). To set the scrolled lines in firefox is explained here: http://www.pcworld.com/article/16363...n_Firefox.html

Thanks but no joy! And, one thing I've noticed is that the "about:config" used in Firefox on Linux (Ubuntu) is different from that found in the "about:config" in Firefox on Windows. But, as I stated is that I can scroll single-one using the keyboard - no problem. It's just the scroll-wheel on the mouse scrolls at a minimum of 3 or 5 lines at a time (not sure exactly how many. So, I guess at this point I will just have to "live with it" until something is figured out and maybe corrected.

see here: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Gecko:Mouse...17.29_or_later
for me mousewheel.system_scroll_override_on_root_content.vertical.factor worked

I have ... I think ... fixed my problem. I found this information at the link provided here. It is "http://support.mozilla.org/nl/questions/943440". I changed the settings for mousewheel.default.delta_multiplier_x, mousewheel.default.delta_multiplier_y & mousewheel.default.delta_multiplier_z smaller. I changed the setting from "100" to "50" for all three items. Now, using my mousewheel I am scrolling one line at a time. So for now I am considering the problem fixed. I hope this helps anyone else having this same problem. Thanks to all.
