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!

FlashPlayer in Maxthon browser

Recently installed the maxthon browser, seems to work fine. But I could not play in a new browser-based game. When the game starts the message appeared about obsolete flash player. A little googling, I learned that the company Adobe discontinued development of his brainchild. But the company Google has continued product development, implementing it in the Chrome browser.

Sorry for the spelling and phonetic errors in the text.

The Internet has information how to move the flash player from chromium in chromium. With this information and a bit of luck I managed to connect the latest version of the flash player in the browser Maxthon.
If you haven't tried Maxthon browser, you can install it from here.
Installation into Linux Mint:
So, first install the flash player from Google ( its name "PepperFlash")

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:skunk/pepper-flash
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pepflashplugin-installer 

Then in the terminal will open the file with the information about the launch of Maxthon browser:
for Linux mint mate

sudo pluma /opt/maxthon/maxthon-browser

for Pinguy OS/Ubuntu 

sudo gedit /opt/maxthon/maxthon-browser

You will see a similar content

We need only the bottom line, should append only "--ppapi-flash version= version of the flash player, at the time of writing this post, this was the most current, by the way, you can even specify the version is older, if you want. 
I had this kind of content 

exec -a $0 /opt/maxthon/maxthon $pepper --enable-smooth-scrolling --ppapi-flash-version= "$@"

Next, find the row 


and replace

Save and close the file. Now run the Maxthon browser and in the address field, type the following


If everything is successful, you will see something similar to
Maxthon 33.0.1750.0 ()
Flash plugin /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/
Flash plugin 11.2 r202 /opt/maxthon/plugins/ (not used)
Flash plugin 11.2 r202 /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/ (not used)
Flash plugin 11.2 r202 /opt/mint-flashplugin-11/ (not used)
