Natural scrolling (with inertia)

Hi, i’m a noob and I know it, can I ask you how can I achive a similar natural scrolling effect (with trackpad) like on windows or android.

The scroll in firefox seems so choppy and laggy sometimes, like it’s not very reactive.
Thank you in advance

One possibility is a video driver mismatch - can you post the output of inxi -Faz, with triple ` before and after it? Will help whoever comes along to solve it :grin:

Without it, all we can do is speculate… (certainly not something I have experienced).
