changing mouse wheel scroll speed

Hey guys,

I'm fiddling about this issue quite some time now. Is there any way to accelerate the speed of my mouse wheel without having KDE installed?

I tried adding Option "VertScrollDelta" "20" to my xorg.conf without results, xset won't find a matching property either.

Any suggestions?

Re: changing mouse wheel scroll speed

Mouse wheel scrolling is received from xserver by applications as 'mouse pressed; mouse released' events. So, scrolling speed is application dependent (or toolkit dependent).

In qt applications you can change this with 'qtconfig'. Run 'qtconfig', go to interface tab and you should see 'Wheel Scroll Lines' option. In firefox and chrome there are separate settings for this. In gtk.. I have no idea how to do this in gtk. You can also check 'xinput list' and 'xinput list-props id-of-your-mouse', maybe there will be some device-specific setting that you can change.

xinput shows no related properties. I would especially be interested to speed up scrolling in chromium since the scroll-pixels flag was removed.
