Increasing Mouse Scroll Speed in Linux
By default the scroll speed in Linux is pretty slow, regardless of the distro. I tried so many imwheel configurations but many of them have issues with chrome scrolling being glitchy.
Finally, this is the one that works well for me, no issues with any applications
sudo apt update sudo apt install imwheel
Create a file
~/.imwheelrc. You can use your favourite text editor for it.
".*" None, Up, Button4, 3 None, Down, Button5, 3 Control_L, Up, Control_L|Button4 Control_L, Down, Control_L|Button5 Shift_L, Up, Shift_L|Button4 Shift_L, Down, Shift_L|Button5
And that's it
You can adjust the scroll speed y changing the number 3. Higher value means faster scrolling. I found 3 to work best for me. Your mileage may vary. Make sure you use the below command to restart imwheel after updating the value
You can manually start/restart imwheel using the command
For imwheel to start automatically on boot, you need to add it to the startup applications. Please note that we need imwheel to start after the X-window is started, so adding it to rc.d files won't work.
Startup Applications ->
Add and add it like below
That's pretty much it
