    Maintaining mouse/touchpad settings

    I have recently installed 13-04 64 bit, and find cursor control a little shaky. It's very difficult to move the cursor to one of the scroll arrows, for example, and have it stay there when one lifts ones finger from the touchpad. I have found that slowing down the touchpad pointer speed helps a lot,, but each time, on restart, I find that it has reset itself to roughly 50%. Is there any way to fix this so that it stays where I have put it even through a reboot?

    You may try installing "gpointing-device-settings" which is a GUI tool for extended mouse/touchpad settings -
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gpointing-device-settings
    It does not create a launcher icon in Unity, so you may have to run it from terminal (or Alt-F2) > "gpointing-device-settings" command.

    See if it can set the touchpad to your liking (make a note of the default values before changing them, since it does not have a "Defaults" button). It should be able to save the settings once set. If not, you may have to look into scripting solutions with "xinput" commands.

    Thanks, Varunendra! I solved it with dconf-editor.
