    Cursor speed resets after every suspend

    Hi

    I got a problem with setting the cursor speed. I use the following setting for my needs:
    Code:
    xset m 2/1 4
    But whenever I suspend my computer, the settings reset and I have to do it all over again. is there a way to make it permanent?

    Thanks

    Try adding that information to the xorg configuration files (instead of running xset). It should make it a permanent default. To do so, either add the releavant entries to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file if you have one, or in the absence of an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, create (with root privileges) the file /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-mouse-acceleration.conf with the following content:
    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
    	Identifier "My Mouse"
    	MatchIsPointer "yes"
    	Option "AccelerationNumerator" "2"
    	Option "AccelerationDenominator" "1"
    	Option "AccelerationThreshold" "4"
    EndSection
    ...and log out and back in again to test. Review the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file to confirm that these settings were applied.

    Hi, thanks for your suggestion. I added what you wrote to the /etc/X11/xorg.conf, but I'm still having the same problem...
    Here is the /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    Code:

    Re: Cursor speed resets after every suspend

    Did the mouse work properly on boot (with respect to cursor speed) but got reset after suspend again?

    What happens if you manually unload the psmouse module prior to suspending:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -r psmouse
    ...then suspend and on resume, manually reload the module:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe psmouse
    ...are the settings maintained?

    What modules are currently loaded?
    Code:
    lsmod

    No, it didn't work on boot.
    Nothing happens when unloading on suspend / loading on wake (cursor speed still resets).

    Okay, remove the /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-mouse-acceleration.conf file since its not working.

    Lets try this approach instead. Create the file /etc/pm/sleep.d/000fix_mouse_acceleration with the following content:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    export DISPLAY=":0"
    case "$1" in
        thaw|resume)
            /usr/bin/xset m 2/1 4
        ;;
    esac
    ...save the file and make it executable. It will be run everytime the system resumes from suspend or hibernate and should re-set the mouse settings. Review the /var/log/pm-suspend.log file for errors/messages if it doesn't work.

    Still the same.

    Code:
    Running hook /etc/pm/sleep.d/000fix_mouse_acceleration resume suspend:
    No protocol specified
    /usr/bin/xset:  unable to open display ":0"
    /etc/pm/sleep.d/000fix_mouse_acceleration resume suspend: Returned exit code 1.

    Re: Cursor speed resets after every suspend

    Perhaps we need to export Xauthority as well. Change the /etc/pm/sleep.d/000fix_mouse_acceleration file to look like this:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    username=MYUSERNAME
    userhome=/home/$username
    export XAUTHORITY="$userhome/.Xauthority"
    export DISPLAY=":0"
    case "$1" in
        thaw|resume)
            su -c $username "/usr/bin/xset m 2/1 4"
        ;;
    esac
    ...change MYUSERNAME to be your system username and try again. Refer to /var/log/pm-suspend.log for errors if it doesn't work.

    Re: Cursor speed resets after every suspend

    Can you post back the contents of your /etc/pm/sleep.d/000fix_mouse_acceleration file for a quick once-over? Something might be amiss in the file.
