I am very used to mouse wheel acceleration but I haven't found any setting for it in the KDE settings.

Also, the maximum possible value you can fill there (strangely it counts per lines) still is very slow.

I'm not sure if this is just a setting which is missing in KDE or if this is even missing in Xorg. If so, maybe this should be forwarded to Xorg then.

Reproducible: Always

I would also warmly welcome such feature. After having used windows for some days, I struggle with scrolling now... I also agree with counting per pixels as scrolling in item list (GHNS for instance) is really not easy atm.

Any updates?

The bug for X is marked as wontfix, therefore we can't have a setting for it, sorry.

Ok, so lets hope sometime someone will implement this, so you can add a setting.
