Scrolling in editor under Linux is slow. Is there any possibility to make it faster?
If you are using antialiasing under Linux you may experience very bad scrolling in editor (occurs only with some graphical cards). Try to turn off the antialiasing in Tools | Options | Editing | Editor Settings | Text Antialiasing, it will help a lot.
In NetBeans 5.0 and later the blit scrolling mode is enforced which should further accelerate the scrolling and the changes above may not be needed.
Applies to: NetBeans 4.x and later up to 6.5
Platforms: Linux, Solaris
