Howdy.

I'm using an HP laptop (dv9000, Ubuntu 8.10, 64bit), and under System > Preferences > Mouse, there's no option for how quickly the scrolling should be.

Ideally, I'd love for a very smooth scrolling, just a few pixels at a time, but I haven't experienced that yet on a computer.

Is there a plugin or tweak, or something I can do to smooth out my scrolling when using my touchpad?

This is probably not going to help you, but have a look at these pages:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gtk+2.0/+bug/124440
https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/9200

Plus about a million other pages. The bottom line is that there seems to be no easy solution - yet.

Thanks. Like was stated in the second link you posted, it doesn't really solve the root of the problem, but is much closer to being better.

Thanks.
