    Exclamation Can you change the mouse scroll wheel speed?? (Wubi 10.10 Meerkat)

    After an amazing ordeal with drivers, terminals, and command-line codes, I finally found an ethernet cable that plugged in correctly, installed the drivers, and now I have wireless! Yahoo!

    Now, about another problem...

    The mouse scroll wheel speed/line skipping is way too fast. It skips half the page in one scroll! Is there a menu (like Windows) that lets you customize this?

    In technical terms, it's a Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 with BlueTrack technology.

    Some MS mice have a scrollwheel bug. Try unplugging (wait a few seconds) then replugging usb cable. If that fixes the scroll speed then your mouse has this bug. There is no permanent fix that I could find except to buy a none-MS mouse.

    Good Luck.

    I was skeptical about solving it by unplugging it... but I said, What the heck...

    Thanks! This also worked for me using a Microsoft wireless mobile mouse 4000 on my laptop running Ubuntu 10.04.

    Not an ideal solution but works
