Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I use Shift+(PgUp/PgDown) while scrolling in the terminal. But it seems to scroll one screen (or a half may be) at a time. I feel comfortable scrolling the terminal by line with the mouse, but don't like to touch it every time. After googling I found Ctrl+Shift+(Up/Down) does this on other Linux systems. But it doesn't seem to work on my CentOS.

Could somebody give the easiest solution to this problem?

IIRC Ctrl+Shift+Up/Down was introduced in gnome-terminal-2.32. –  don_crissti Jun 20 '13 at 12:02
