I want to use the scroll function in my C code project in eclipse. The problem is that It jumps a lot of lines for every little scroll and I just want it to move with one line resolution.
Eclipce is startad inside VMware player and there is a setting in control center/phereipherals/mouse that is set on "Mouse wheel scroll by 1 lines" but it doesn't work in eclipce if I open an other document in VMware (using petalinux) it works ok.
I tried to find some settings but no luck.
Anywhone that knows a solution for this annoying problem?

It's not Eclipse that does this, but the version of Gtk+ installed on your system. Check out this blog: http://javadave.blogspot.com/2004/12/eclipse-and-mouse-scroll-wheel.html

So, unless you are prepared to go through an update of your Gtk+ (and risk maybe more severe problems somewhere else), I'm afraid you will have to live with the annoyance.

Maybe installing of FreeWheel

will resolve your problem.. You can configure there by how many lines to scroll.
