I have a wireless mouse device and I would like to speed-up the scrolling. I found a hint that tell us to install gpointing-device-settings.

Unfortunatelly this program is not working in Lucid.Trying to running it one get a segmentation fault error, so I went here to ask how to manually speed up scroll ?

gsynaptics is also not working for me.

You're gonna have to compile a short program, but take a look at this guy's attempt to increase the scroll speed by X. If you need help with this, I'd take it to or If you do ask a question somewhere else, put a link here so future questioners can learn!
