I have the "Mac OSX Lion" theme installed on my Ubuntu 12.04.1 computer.

I have this glitch with my scroll wheel, that when I try to scroll down the page,l it skips about 1/2 of it.

What can I do to fix this?

I found that you can fix this glitch by simply un-plugging your mouse for 10 seconds, then plugging it back in.

After you do that, it scrolls normally.

any idea of how can fix this without remove the mouse from PC? :) – euDennis Mar 9 '14 at 19:19
Hold your mouse where it is and move your PC away from it. In all seriousness, pgrytdal's fix does work and is permanent. – Pickledegg Jun 10 '14 at 17:40
