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!

ScreenRuler - measure objects on your desktop

ScreenRuler is a simple onscreen ruler. Allows measurement in pixels and other units. Has horizontal and vertical modes. ScreenRuler is useful primarily designers, web developers and those involved in the interfaces.

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


The program is a line that appears on your desktop always on top (configurable). You can drag the ruler anywhere on the screen.
If you right-click on the line displays a shortcut menu. It is possible to cause the settings window, change the units of measurement, rotate the ruler 90 degrees, to lock the always-on-top (optional On Top).
Supported the following units: pixels, centimeters, inches, picas, points, and percentages (relative to the length of the line).
In the settings you can change the color of the line, the font size and color.
The disadvantages of the program include the inability to rotate the line by an arbitrary angle.
