Scrolls 1 slide at a time using the mouse scrollwheel. Grabbing the slider is normals as well. I don't understand the problem.

Sorry, I completely forgot to mention:  This is with a laptop's touchpad.  I just tested with a normal mouse and it works as you described.

It is also not a problem of having a super-sensitive touchpad: in other applications the scroll speed is appropriate.

I guess we could close as dupe, even though this is Linux

Sigh, I did not notice the other report has meta "Win-Touch". Let's keep this separate, then.

I reproduce the problem with LO 6.4.3.0+ built at home under Ubuntu 18.04 x86-64 with Gnome DE. Even if I set the speed of the touchpad equal to the speed of the mouse, the scrolling with the touchpad is very fast comparing what it is with the mouse.
