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!

ScudCloud -client for Slack on Linux Mint

ScudCloud is a non official open-source Linux (Debian, Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Mint, Arch) desktop client for Slack. Slack is a platform for team communication.

Sorry for the spelling and phonetic errors in the text.

Slack offers persistent chat rooms organized by topic, as well as private groups and direct messaging. All content inside Slack is searchable from one search box. Slack integrates with a large number of third-party services and supports community-built integrations. Major integrations include services such as Google Drive, Dropbox, Heroku, Crashlytics, GitHub and Zendesk. Some sources also think that Slack is such an innovation that it will replace IRC one day.
ScudCloud uses the QT library + Webkit to render the web version of Slack, but using the QWebkit-Native bridge to improve desktop integration with:
  • multiple teams support,
  • native system notifications,
  • count of unread direct mentions at launcher/sytray icon,
  • alert/wobbling on new messages,
  • optional "Close to Tray".

You can set ScudCloud to close to tray (this works on any desktop) and its icon will display the unread message count.
Installation into Linux Mint 17/17.1:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:rael-gc/scudcloud
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install scudcloud

If you want spell checking (it'll only mark wrong words in red, but no suggestions), add the hunspell dictionary for your language. For en-us:

sudo apt-get install hunspell-en-us

Installation into Linux Mint 13:
additionally you'll need to update qtwebkit: Slack is not compatible with libqtwebkit4 package. Please add the following PPAs (for updated qtwebkit):

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:immerrr-k/qtwebkit4-backport
sudo apt-get update

If you want to use a Slack icon instead of ScudCloud (which is not possible to include in this package due to copyright), download any 128px Slack icon to your home folder saving as scudcloud.png and run:

sudo dpkg-divert --add --rename --divert /opt/scudcloud/resources/scudcloud.png.real /opt/scudcloud/resources/scudcloud.png
sudo cp ~/scudcloud.png /opt/scudcloud/resources/

Good Luck!!!
