I have tried Ubuntu 13.04 and Linux Mint 15 and both DO NOT HAVE optinos for setting mouse scroll wheel sensitivity.

They had only mouse acceleration and sensitivity, but the scroll wheel speed you cannot set in these distributions.

It's frustrating, to not be able to set this thing.

Is this only a problem of Gnome distros or KDE and Xfce has the same problems too?

This has nothing to do with distributions. You need to search for xorg or xserver information - the input driver that X uses for your mouse should handle scroll speed. –  Mel Boyce Jun 30 '13 at 9:56
@MelBoyce Where can I find these informations? –  Derfder Jun 30 '13 at 10:19
You could try an internet search engine and using something like "xorg mouse wheel scroll speed" as your search term. –  Mel Boyce Jun 30 '13 at 10:26
