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!

Hardware acceleration of Flash in Chrome (and similar) browser in Linux Mint

If you use Chrome or Chromium, and hardware acceleration is disabled for your graphics card, you can force it to get better performance when playing a video (e.g. YouTube), and also support some features such as the 3D view of the earth in the new Google Maps.

Sorry for the spelling and phonetic errors in the text.

Not so long ago I wrote about browser game HEROES ONLINE.
The game is great, but there was one problem. The game was very slow and twitching. Began to look for information, why is it so and not otherwise. It turned out that the developers of Chrome is set by default turned off hardware acceleration with flash. This means that flash does not employ the resources of the video card.
Fortunately, such injustice easy to fix.

To check whether your browser Chrome/Chromium hardware acceleration, open a new tab, type "chrome://gpu" (without the quotes) and see the "Graphics Feature Status" - all (or at least almost all) should say "hardware accelerated".

If not, follow these steps:

1. open a new tab, type "chrome://flags" (without the quotes), locate the "Override software rendering list", enable it and restart Chrome/Chromium

  • you should now have access to new opportunities 3D overview of Google Earth on Google Maps (find the icon "Earth" in the lower right corner of the Google Maps Preview)
  • see the full screen video at 1080p YouTube HTML5 and Flash
  • And of course, no problems playing in your favorite browser games

Good Luck!!!
