Re: Re: how to obtain single-line scroll with wheel mouse? (FC5)

Thanks Tony, Chris, and Matthew:
It appears that there is no way to adjust the mouse
scroll rate in Gnome or X11.  If any developers are
reading this, it would be wonderful if one day a user
could, with one setting, control the number of lines
that a wheel mouse scrolls by per notch.  As for me, I
find the default setting rather irritating because it
moves by too many lines per notch and I have a hard
time adjusting my eyes to the new line location after
a single scroll.  It is enough of a problem that I
question whether I can work efficiently using Linux.

To answer your question, Chris, my xorg.conf file
contains this:

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier  "Mouse0"
	Driver      "mouse"
	Option	    "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
	Option	    "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
	Option	    "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
	Option	    "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
