I have Fedora 29 here, Gnome 3.30.2, more or less suddenly all the mice I have connected to the computer (Logitech/Solaar) have a very low speed for the scrooling wheel.

I couldn't find what changed, and Solaar and Gnome settings do not give the option to change the speed of the wheel. How can I change that?

This must be a hardware/driver problem. I solve it by disconnecting and reconnecting the USB dongle (Logitech Unifying piece).

Bring up the Settings app for the mouse: image description

Then adjust the "touchpad speed" control. If that doesn't work, use the gnome-tweaks applet. Install if necessary. Switch to the Keyboard and Mouse tab. The Acceleration Profile has three choices (at least on Fedora 27). Try changing it to another choice even if the current choice looks okay.

I had tried all this, without any immediate change. After a few hours the problem fixed itself. Maybe the system didn’t read the changes for a while.
