Disables the new scroll acceleration introduced in Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion)

branch: master


This app disables the new scroll acceleration introduced in Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion). If you're like me, you might make rapid, small scrolling gestures when scanning a document. Mountain Lion changed the scrolling behavior such that after a few of these rapid gestures, 'extreme acceleration' occurs, causing the document to scroll far more than I usually intend. This app disables this behavior.

Note that this app has no user interface -- upon launch, it does its work in the background (without appearing in the Dock) and immediately quits.

===== DOWNLOAD =====

The compiled app can be downloaded here.

===== INSTALLATION =====

To install the app, put it in a safe place (e.g. /Applications), and set it to be launched when you log in (using the 'Users & Groups' preference pane in System Preferences.)
