Disables the new scroll acceleration introduced in Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion)
Latest commit 7ab1d5a Dave Keck Updated readme


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.)
