    It's a great question. The other mouse scrolls down a bit and then reverses direction!!

    Re: Mouse scroll

    Answer. I've now tried four different mice. The answer is that Mint doesn't seem to handle them well. I've finally got one to work which is a simple scrolling mouse from China. It seems that the other mice require special drivers that Mint cannot bypass.
