Hey, I've got a Microsoft' Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000, which, on Windows 7, does have smooth scrolling.

Basically, the scroll wheel doesn't have the tiny "lock-ups" between each step, but Ubuntu doesn't get it.

I think this is a great feature, and I'm missing it from this hardware. Does Ubuntu supports it already?

On windows, seems like the scroll scrolls one line only, but depending on the speed of the scroll wheel turn, it'll scroll faster. Seems like to be easy to emulate it, with acceleration and stuff. But I don't know how to do such =(

Hey, thanks for the reply =)
Not exactly, The mouse is working as it should (actually, if the scroll weren't smooth to roll - this means, had notches between each step - I woldn't be here)

It's more like a feature.. Move the scroll wheel a little bit down, move a line. Move the scroll wheel fast, move many lines down. I've got addicted with this on Windows, it was really nice to read large documents and Twitter.

Thanks again =)

Hey,

Unfortunately there's nothing related to scroll there (Is that right?).
I'll be waiting for more tips, Thanks =)

After 2 days googling around, seems like with Ubuntu you cannot configure how fast/how many lines a scroll should move. A big loss for us, Users, who had taken the Scroll configuration as granted since 1957.
Isn't worth changing OS just for this (Heh, even if mouse didn't work completely, I wouldn't go back to the nest of viruses), but I feel like partly losing my hardware here.
I can't complain or demand anything, I'm not paying for this software anyway. I can just wait. A wait that the first complainers are waiting since 2002.

Oh well..

hi there, I don't know if I'm committing thread necromancy here, but I just wanted to tell you that you could at least install a browser plugin that would emulate smooth scrolling there. It can't go beyond the limitations of the native driver, but it's still an improvement. I'm using Chrome with the Chromium Wheel Smooth Scroller plugin which is intended for OSX-like scrolling but you can easily configure it to just work as a "regular" smooth scroll plugin.
