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 the NVIDIA driver 375 on Linux Mint

NVIDIA has released a new LTS version of its graphics driver for GNU Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris and other supported operating systems. The Nvidia driver for Linux has reached 375 series.

Sorry for the spelling and phonetic errors in the text.

Note. Before downloading and installing new driver, make sure that your system has a supported NVIDIA GPU. You can also use automatic scanning, contacting the Drivers section on the website of NVIDIA to find the latest drivers for your NVIDIA GPU.
How to identify and install the correct driver for your Nvidia video card in Linux Mint can be viewed on page "How to detect and install the correct version of the Nvidia driver on Linux Mint". Otherwise, after you install the NVIDIA driver 367 you risk not to run the system.

Installation latest version into Linux Mint:

If you not previously added repository to the system

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa

You can set in the driver Manager or in the terminal

sudo apt update
sudo apt install nvidia-375 nvidia-settings

After the installation, restart the computer to activate this driver.

After a new logon check the installed graphics driver utility NVIDIA X Server Settings, search in the menu or in the terminal command:

glxinfo | grep OpenGL

Good Luck!!!
