Hi folks, Can I make "nano" scroll? If YES please advise how to make it. Looking at man nano "M-M" is for toggling mouse support. Does it include scrolling? TIA ...

    I'm not sure what you mean. You can scroll down in nano by hitting the down arrow on your keyboard. Are you trying to get your mouse's scroll button to work like that?

    Hi techieMoe,


    Oh sorry, I meant can I scroll with mouse wheel? Not with up/down arrow. Tks.

    Mouse Wheel works in nano and vi editors. if its not working in your machine, reconfigure your mouse.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Hi devils_casper,

    Mouse Wheel works in nano and vi editors. if its not working in your machine, reconfigure your mouse.
    My mouse wheel works on xterm, browser, etc. but NOT on vi and nano. How to edit ~/.profile to make it work on vi and nano? TIA
