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!

Wakefull, like Caffeine, keeps your screen awake by blocking screen/power savers.

The main difference from Caffeine is that Wakefull gives you (the user) access to the scripts being run - so you can adapt it for whatever environment you are using.

Sorry for the spelling and phonetic errors in the text.

Wakefull after running integrates in the notification area (system tray) and does not have any settings. The script works in any production environment which uses gnome-screensaver (gnome-power-manager) or xscreensaver (xfce4-power-manager) to manage the script (off/on) you can use mouse and/or keyboard combination.
