This is the way that Mac OS scrolling with a boring old handheld mouse works (as opposed to fancy soap bar and multitouch mice): The more and the faster you scroll, the further the mouse scrolling goes.

For instance, if I scroll one little tick on the mouse, the window scrolls a tiny amount. However, if I scroll twice in fast succession, the window scrolls a small amount once and then a faster amount the next time, etc.

Ubuntu has boring old pure linear scrolling. Is there nay way I can enable the Mac OS scrolling?

There is software called NaturalScrolling.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:zedtux/naturalscrolling

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y install naturalscrolling

Happy scrolling.

From the PPA description: "Use Natural Scrolling to reverse the direction of scrolling on your Linux." This is not what the OP asked for. –  Glutanimate Oct 26 '12 at 17:22
