This is my favorite GUI text editor for Linux, I use the Windows version all the time too. I also covered this topic here.
I'm using Mint Cinnamone installed on virtual machine VMWare. The instruction helped me to adjust my mouse scroll wheel speed. I set the value to 6. Now it's comfortable to use the mouse. Thanks a lot!

Wallch - automatic wallpaper changer, add clock on the wall and not only

Wallch is a wallpaper changer. It doesn't simply change your desktop background with the wallpapers that you have in your hard disk, though. While it does that well by monitoring the folder that you have selected for new or deleted pictures, it has lots of features, like Picture of the day, Live Earth, Wallpaper Clocks and Live Website!

Live Earth: Live Earth Wallpaper sets as your desktop background a "live" wallpaper of the earth.

Picture of the day: Picture of the day sets as your dekstop background a picture chosen from Wikipedia, updated daily!

Wallpaper Clocks: Wallpaper Clocks combine beautiful wallpapers with the time and date. There are various wallpaper clocks that you can choose from. Pick your favourites from Wallch takes care of the installation of the wallpaper clocks in your system and the rotation of the wallpapers.

Live Website: Live website can set as your desktop background a web page of your choice. It was an early developed feature at the after the release of Wallch 3.0 and now it has evolved and allows you to sign in into a very wide range of websites and take a screenshot of an otherwise restricted page. Live Website also allows you to crop part of the page.

It currently works on Gnome (with or without Unity integration), LXDEXFCE and Mate.
