<<What do you have in your xorg.conf (in the pointer
Possibly try "Auto", "ExplorerPS/2", "usb"...
My mouse scrolls appx 3 lines in gedit, but it's a
completely different device.>>
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
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
