I have a Magic Mouse on my iMac and I am using BetterTouchTool. How do I increase the scrolling speed? I want to scroll more swiping smaller distances...

I want to set the scrolling more than the maximum possible at the preference values.

Probably I will need some sort of terminal command.

thanks

You can apply a custom acceleration value: defaults write -g com.apple.scrollwheel.scaling -float <float> and relogin.

The scale seems to be roughly linear and to not have any practical maximum limit.

Editing the NSGlobalDomain plist in a text editor: f=~/Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist; cp $f $f-; plutil -convert xml1 $f; open -a TextEdit $f
