Increasing Google Chrome’s Scroll Speed

On my Ubuntu 11.10 system, scrolling through pages using Google Chrome was terribly slow using the mouse wheel.

Here is an easy way to fix this: Launch Chrome with the parameter –scroll-pixels=n, where n is the number of pixels to scroll. For example:
google-chrome –scroll-pixels=400

To integrate this parameter into the desktop shortcut link, open the following file as root: /usr/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop

Search for the line “Exec=/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome %U” and replace it with “Exec=/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome –scroll-pixels=400 %U”. Now, you can easily start Chrome using your desktop shortcut and the mouse scroll speed should be improved.
