It is strange that you-all say that, while for me the defaults work
This could be a combination of getting used to the default + the type of mouse.
I use Logitech Performance MX mouse which has a hardware button (button below the scroll wheel here: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/814dF6jfIoL._SL1500_.jpg
) to toggle the scroll wheel to scroll smoothly vs in clicks. If I happen to scroll in emacs with the scroll wheel in smooth mode, the default 5-line scrolling gets very dizzy. OTOH the 1-line scrolling works fine in both smooth and "clicky" scrolls.
Also I have disabled the progressive scroll in my config for quite some time now. I don't have the notes with that setting, but I vaguely remember the default setting to not give a very good scrolling experience.
If you turn the wheel one click, does text scroll by 5 lines or by
more? I get exactly 5 lines, which looks to me a much better default
than have it scroll by just one line.
Yes, functionally it behaves as expected; no issues there.
PS: Thanks to Tak and this thread, I learned about mouse-wheel-scroll-amount. While I did not customize that option earlier, I had unknowingly set a "scroll by 1 line" behavior by manually binding mouse-4 and mouse-5.
