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!

HotCorner plugin - active hot corners for for Xfce4 on Linux Mint

Desktop XFCE4 now has a plug-in hot corners, which provides an easy way for users to activate and engage the four corners of a monitor to perform specific tasks or open applications.

Sorry for the spelling and phonetic errors in the text.

The plugin is active corners XFCE4 (XFCE4 HotCorner Plugin) is a young project created a week ago. Currently it supports the following operations on the monitor:

-xfdashboard (dashboard style for Xfce GNOME Shell)

-Show desktop

-Enable splash screen

-Turning off the monitor

-To run a custom command

-The plugin also has the ability to disable hot corners when the active window is full screen.

Installation into Linux Mint 17/17.1/17.2:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xubuntu-dev/extras
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xfce4-hotcorner-plugin xfdashboard

After the installation, right click on any free space of the panel and choose Add new items:

HotCorner plugin - active hot corners for for Xfce4 on Linux Mint

In the opened window, Add new items, activate the line with the plugin HotCorner and click Add:

HotCorner plugin - active hot corners for for Xfce4 on Linux Mint

On the panel to display the applet in the form of a monitor. Click on it and select Properties:

Now you can configure and use the four corners of the monitor in its discretion, so that when you hover the mouse cursor at a particular corner of the monitor was carried out assigned functions or commands:

And to enable or disable triggering hot corners with the window open to full screen (Disable when active window is fill screen).

this works BUT it is buggy, you can't pick a window
this other method works better for picking an specific window and does not add extra like the xfdashboard
