Quick Tip – Mouse Scrolling in XFCE

Hey guys, another quick tip! So was just getting annoyed about my mouse scrolling being odd – I had natural scrolling set in my main XFCE settings, however it did not behave the same for everything. In a random google session, I found out that theres a lower level setting for it. So, heres the instructions I ran – you’l have to modify them for your specific needs though! as your mouse may not have the same name. You will also need to disable natural scrolling in XFCE to make it work properly!

sudo apt-get install xinput
xinput --list
xinput --list-props "PixArt USB Optical Mouse"
xinput set-prop "PixArt USB Optical Mouse" "Evdev Scrolling Distance" -1 1 1

So theres another random quick tip!
