My very good friend asked me to help him install Linux Mint beside Windows 10. After the installation he enjoyed it, but a quick scroll through pages in any application was very bad for my friend. I began to look for a solution. After a short search I found the IMWHEEL utility (available in the standard repositories). And found a convenient solution for use of this utility.
TESTED ON LINUX MINT 18
1. Install IMWHEEL
sudo apt install imwheel
2. I found an interesting script that facilitates the configuration utility. (Thanks to Nick from http://www.nicknorton.net/?q=node/10)
install this script (single command)
cd ~/; wget https://goo.gl/49LhhE -O imwheel-script.sh; chmod +x imwheel-script.sh; sh imwheel-script.sh; exit
3. Startup. To utility imwheel worked at every system startup, add imwheel to startup list.
On my computer it worked after reboot.
