I am getting progressively worse hand pain from using the mousewheel. I have two questions:
1) How can I disable the mousewheel? I realize tape, glue, pointy spikes poking up could work, but is there a less drastic software solution?
2) On windows you can hold a button then scroll using the mouse to drag the window. This seems it could be a better option.
Update: I have resorted to tape (1) and found the gpointing-device-settings tools (2) from this answer: MouseImp alternative on Linux (drag and scroll)?
