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!

Install Linux Kernel 3.17 (Stable) in Linux Mint

After two months of development, Linus Torvalds announced the release of Linux kernel 3.17. Among the most notable improvements: new system calls getrandom and seccomp, the possibility of accessing the memory via the file descriptor (memfd), support for restricting operations to the file via a handle, which is enabled by default implementation of Render Nodes, support for dma-buf cross-device synchronization, dropped support for architectures POWER3 and rs64.

Sorry for the spelling and phonetic errors in the text.
Owner and main writer of is not a native English speaker.

In the new version are made about 12 thousand patches from 1300 developers, the size of the patch - 54 MB (changes in the 10605 files, added 653577 lines of code, removed 668166 lines). About 46% of all presented in 3.17 changes associated with device drivers, approximately 18% of the changes have to update the code for specific hardware architectures, 12% associated with the network stack, with 5% file systems and 3% c internal subsystems of the kernel.


Suitable for Linux Mint 17/16/15/13 Elementary OS 0.2/0.3 PinguyOS 14/12
Installing the Linux Kernel 3.17 into Linux Mint/Pinguy OS or others Ubuntu distrs:
1. The easiest way to use the utility KernelUpdate.
2. Open a terminal, copy and run one of the commands according to the architecture of your system/computer, at your own risk:
For 32-bit (single command):
cd /tmp && wget && sudo dpkg -i *.deb
For 64-bit (single command):
cd /tmp && wget && sudo dpkg -i *.deb
3. Update GRUB (GRUB need to upgrade the Linux system where it is installed, if you have more than one)
sudo update-grub
Note If you have a boot loader installed BURG, and it should be updated:
sudo update-burg
4. At the end of the installation, close all applications and restart the computer the following command:
sudo reboot
Once logged in, check the version of the current kernel with the command:
uname -r
If you decide to delete the kernel 3.17,
1. When the computer bootsthe GRUB menu, select your old kernelAfter booting the system, remove the new kernel by command below
sudo apt-get purge linux-image-3.17-*
To return to the previous kernel when booting Grub select Previous Linux versions
