    Cannot get mouse accel to work

    *** Thread can now be closed, a bug report has been filed. ***

    Hi all,

    am on Ubuntu Studio 12.10 x64 bit with Steam and used to play CS with mouse acceleration. Problem is, I cannot get it to work despite the many options I've tried configuring it in mouse settings. It seems as if it was always off.

    If you hop on Windows and compare to Linux, the accel is different. I need to get that same accel to work on Ubuntu.

    To clarify a bit more:

    When I play with the settings and adjust them accordingly, the accel can be felt on the desktop, but not under Steam. There it works the same way as before. As if it was turned off. I tried, during a game, to adjust to my liking, on the desktop the mouse goes like crazy, in the game as if accel was turned off.

    Any ideas?

    Open up both your mouse settings and dconf-editor @ org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.mouse
    and try some different settings.

    These are the settings in xfconf:



    Can someone tell me what are the highest accepted values for accel?

    Or could someone give me a good tip on a DE that has the best management of peripherals? I.e. I'd need to get my mouse accel properly working. I need it to be real speedy, since I've always used mouse accel in games.

    On the desktop the acceleration works, the mouse is blazing fast, but under Steam no, as if it was turned off.

    Update:

    Running Ubuntu Main now and it's the same. Accel works on desktop, not under Steam.

    The mouse acceleration in XFCE4 just ruins some games, and it seems that it's impossible to disable it entirely via configuration. So, I just run a command at login that basically disables all mouse acceleration. Even outside of games, I think it works better without acceleration too.

    Code:
    xset m 1/1 4

    You didn't get me. I need to get it to work, not disable.

    Some people actually rely on acceleration. I'm one of them. I need it like salt in a soup.

    Yer, next time, when you feel like posting an opinion, don't. No one is interested.

    This thread was started to receive technical support. If I wanted to hear someone's opinion I would have asked for it.

    I kindly ask a mod to close this thread, as it is no longer needed. A bug report has officialy been filed to VALVe and they are aware.

    I will admit it was a little distressing to see an actual flame war on this forum.

    I drink my Ubuntu black, no sugar.

    That's because people don't stick to the topic. No one asked them for an opinion, I asked for a technical remedy to the issue, yet they go on with their babble no one cares about.
