I'm been having issues with the scroll-wheel on my mouse for ages now. I've got a Silverstone Raven mouse, and the scrolling action is extremely jerky. If I scroll either up or down, at a natural speed, the scroll action will jerk in the wrong direction almost as much as it goes in the right direction.
I have to scroll almost twice as much to get where I want in a page, and often I'll lose track of where I am because it's not behaving as expected. If I deliberately scroll really slowly, it will go in the correct direction, as expected, but it's really painful.
So, to check that this isn't just a dodgy mouse, I rebooted into Windows - a rare occurrence for me these days - and tried it in there. Scrolling works beautifully; it's really smooth, no glitching, and is a pleasure to use.
Back in Linux-land, the scroll wheel is 'orrible.
In KDE System Settings, I have tried changing the number of lines the mouse wheel scrolls by, but this doesn't affect the glitchiness...
The mouse section of my
/etc/X11/xorg.conf is as configured by default and looks like:-
Section "InputDevice" # generated from default Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "auto" Option "Device" "/dev/psaux" Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no" Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" EndSection
Anyone have any suggestions how to get my mouse working nicely? I'm on Linux 3.7.6 and this has been an issue for about two years now; I just haven't bothered to tell anyone 'til now..
