    Mousekeys too slow

    Hello,

    I've enabled mousekeys. However, it's unusable because it's much too slow. I have put the maximum acceleration and sensibility in the config panel but it didn't change anything.

    Does anyone know how to make it work properly, please ?

    Re: Mousekeys too slow

    I'm having exactly the same problem. Ideas anyone? I tried changing the mouse speed to no avail. The cursor moves at about 9 pixels per second.

    I'm using a gamer's keyboard (steelseries). Don't know if that makes any difference.

    Here the same problem.

    In ubuntu 11 there was an option to increase the speeds of mousekeys, But I can't find the option in 12.

    [SOLVED] Re: Mousekeys too slow

    You can play around with xkbset for the right settings. Found the answer here:

    http://www.exuro.co.uk/2012/07/114/

    Firstly open a terminal window and type the following to install the xkbset package:

    sudo apt-get install xkbset

    A simple one line command can then be used to configure the acceleration:

    xkbset ma [delay] [interval] [time to max] [max speed] [curve]

    For those new to command-line interfaces, the brackets imply that they need to be replaced by a numerical value, tailored to suite a particular use. I have recently used the following for my configuration:

    xkbset ma 60 10 10 20 10

    That particular setting turned out to be too fast. A better setting for me was:

    xkbset ma 60 10 10 5 2

    Re: Mousekeys too slow

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but since the above is relevant to my issue I thought I'd repost.

    I'm using mousekeys and a cheap wireless keyboard to use Ubuntu as a living room PC. Works great for most of what I want. However, I'm having a problem with mousekeys that's very closely related to this.

    I go through and set up everything using xkbset to get the cursor smoothly moving across the screen. Then I decide "Hmm, I need to right click. OK, press -, then 5 will be right click. OK, now time to press / and make 5 a left click again. Why, oh why, does my cursor jump all over the place now?"

    So, basically, after every press of / * - to change which button mouseclicks is simulating, I have to re-run xkbset. Really, really frustrating. If someone points me to a bugzilla page for this, I'd appreciate it. I'm tracking down all kinds of weird stuff related to mousekeys... seems like it's a neglected feature that's working its way out.

    Here's a diff of the results of "xkbset q" before and after changing the button:

    Code:
    bogus@trumper:~$ diff xkbq_Working.txt xkbq_AfterButtonChange.txt 
    14,17c14,17
    < Mouse-Keys Acceleration Interval = 10
    < Mouse-Keys Acceleration Time to Max = 10
    < Mouse-Keys Acceleration Max Speed = 5
    < Mouse-Keys Acceleration Curve = 10
    ---
    > Mouse-Keys Acceleration Interval = 100
    > Mouse-Keys Acceleration Time to Max = 1
    > Mouse-Keys Acceleration Max Speed = 50
    > Mouse-Keys Acceleration Curve = 50
    Any help with how to get these settings to stick around through normal mousekey use would be appreciated.
