After updated to MacOS 12.0 (Monterey), the annoying scrolling acceleration is back. And I can't scroll down with my Logitech Master MX1/MX2/Vertical.

I tried these solutions:

defaults write .GlobalPreferences com.apple.scrollwheel.scaling -1
# Then I re-logged in and defaults read .GlobalPreferences com.apple.scrollwheel.scaling returns 1
defaults write .GlobalPreferences com.apple.scrollwheel.scaling 0

And none of these works.(all from question: How to disable scroll acceleration in macOS Sierra?)

I think it's a very basic setting and I don't want to pay for it.

Is there anything I can do? Thanks.

Disabling acceleration is free in Smooze and does work in Monterey (I'm the developer)

Toggle the "Animate Scroll" to Off and you're good to go.

    Tested, and it works with the non-pro version. I'll test the stability later.

    Update: There is actually a menu bar icon after the testing period. So I uninstalled it.😂
